Unlike the common play, colorful wooden puppets are main characters instead of humans who particularly stand behind a massive bamboo screen to control the puppets’ movements by rods throughout the show. This is not an easy job because skilled puppeteers have to sink a half of their body under water no matter how hot or cold weather is, and pay much attention on keeping their partners moving smoothly on music.
