We are all familiar with the theatre. A very common and popular form is the puppet theatre in various forms. The exhibition presents stick puppets, shadow play figures, glove puppets, and marionettes from across Asia and Europe. The narratives in which they feature are performed not only for entertainment: the figures are identity-shaping and the stories help to explain the vagaries of the world. Puppeteers also make use of the opportunity to educate, to criticize reigning conditions and allude to possible courses of action.
