The Chinese Puppet Show has its roots in remote time.

The marionette (string puppet) appears on stage in full view of the audience. It is of a complicated structure, with the head, shoulders, waist, hands and feet all jointed, movable and controlled by separate wires. During performance, it is operated from a concealed operating bridge high above the puppet.
