With over 150 years of tradition, Taiwan puppets went through many transformations and are today a kaleidoscope filled with local flavors. On the island one may find together the traditional glove puppets and the modernized puppets in the style of ‘Golden Ray’. One may also find marionettes which are part of the Taoist rituals, whereas companies try to create a puppet theatre anchored to its time.
