The Thailand Harmony World Puppet Festival is becoming a must-visit event for puppet lovers and puppeteers from all over the world with many big names from the world of puppets coming to the kingdom to show off their skills.
This year’s event is taking place in the atmospheric little town of Kanchanaburi and individuals and teams of puppeteers from Asia, Europe and Africa will be joining. So there will be a range of shows to watch, with everything from Shadow Puppets in the South East Asian tradition to large scale marionettes telling stories with humour, drama and pathos. Also at the event will be the chance to meet with puppeteers and attend workshops relating to the craft.
The Harmony Puppet Festival was launched in 2013 by the Semathai Marionette Arts for Social Foundation with the aim of promoting puppeteering and helping people to express themselves while preserving their culture through the art.
