An exhibition of puppets is part of the accompanying programme of the 18th International Puppet Festival Golden Dolphin. It will go on display at the State Puppet Theatre in Varna and shows all puppet systems used in performances in China, Prof. Simon Wong from Hong Kong, who is on the international jury, told BTA.
“We are presenting three types of puppets from China which are very different from those used in Europe and America. They are made by hand by several craftsmen and a production may have between 40 and 60 puppets for the different characters. The exhibition will show replicas of the most famous and beautiful puppets in China and they are made by exquisite masters,” said the professor.
The International Puppet Festival Golden Dolphin will be on until October 7 in Varna.
The International Puppet Festival The Golden Dolphin was established in 1972. 2022 will see its 18th edition. It is held once every three years October 1-7.
