The Quanzhou marionette puppet, known for its extraordinary artistic heritage, has been, since the Qin and Han Dynasty, the longest-lasting marionette art that we have inherited. It has become a rare treasure of Chinese marionette theater. In 2012, UNESCO listed the Quanzhou marionette puppet as a Good Practice of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. SHCAT once again invites Quanzhou Puppet Troupe to come to Shanghai and perform a few essential classic pieces for young audiences. Children will have the opportunity to appreciate both the exquisite puppet objects and the virtuosity of manipulating puppets. Suggested for kids 3+
