“A World of Chinese Puppets from the Lin Liu-Hsin Museum, Taiwan” is one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of Chinese and Taiwanese puppet theatre ever presented in the U.S. The exhibition features over 100 unique Chinese puppet theatre artifacts, which have never been shown in the U.S. The exhibition’s opening days are enriched by performances—including live music—by a professional five-member ensemble from the Taiyuan Puppet Theatre Company.

The exhibition includes the four principle types of puppets—shadow, rod, glove, and string (marionette) puppets—as well as stages, scripts, musical instruments, photos, and video clips from several regions of mainland China and Taiwan. The guest curator, Dr. Robin Ruizendaal, is a renowned scholar and author on Chinese puppets and theatre. The Taiyuan ensemble is a tradition-based professional company that utilizes refined modern stage techniques in order to effectively present and preserve the tradition.

This project is generously supported by the Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan), Taiwan Academy—Los Angeles, Taipei Economic & Cultural Office—Honolulu & Los Angeles, and Aston Hotels and Resorts.

EWC Arts Programs are supported by the Hawai‘i Pacific Rim Society, Jhamandas Watumull Fund, Sidney Stern Memorial Trust, Friends of Hawai‘i Charities, Jackie Chan Foundation USA, Sumi Makey, Richard H. Cox, EWC Arts ‘Ohana members, and other generous donors.
