'Adventures in the Crystal Palace': Workshop and Performance by Taiwan’s Shan Puppet Theatre

Sat Aug 13, 2022
11:00am to 3:00pm CT
All ages

Come see an unparalleled performance by Taiwan’s acclaimed Shan Puppet Theatre as they present their play Adventures in the Crystal Palace! This performance blends Hakka music, language, and stage art through the use of hand puppets.

Adapted from the classic novel Journey to the West, this action-packed story tells of the Monkey King’s quest to save Flower Fruit Mountain by visiting the underwater Crystal Palace, and his battle with the Dragon King who lives there.

Participants can also register for a morning workshop with Shan Puppet Theatre where they will learn how to perform with hand puppets, play gongs and drums, and experience a backstage music demonstration. (Space is limited for the workshop.)

All tickets will include access to a post-program reception featuring additional arts activities and Taiwanese snacks.
