My Trip


Marionette Shows and Traditional Theatre

A trip to Mandalay will not be complete without watching a traditional marionette play or theatre performance. In the past, Myanmar puppetry was used for purposes of art, education and entertainment. Marionettes were used to educate people about current events, traditions and literature and also served as a mouthpiece of the people. Now it is considered a dying art form that is being preserved by the likes of Mandalay Marionettes Theatre and other groups.
