The Research Project on Folk Water Puppetry to be Implemented

20/07/2015

Within the context of the ministry-level project titled Preservation and Promotion of the Values of Folk Water Puppetry in Communities (through Studies at Folk Water Puppetry Troupes in the Northern Delta), the project members carried out two field trips at 16 folk water puppetry troupes in Hà Nội and 5 provinces (Hải Dương, Hải Phòng, Nam Định, Thái Bình, and Bắc Ninh) and collected a number of materials about these troupes. However, since many folk artisans passed away, the project members met with many difficulties when investigating such issues as the history of water puppetry arts, its process of formation and development as well as the relationship between each water puppetry troupe and its local community. Meanwhile, each troupe has its own features and developing orientation. Therefore, more time and more works need to be put in the work to deepen the understandings about these folk water puppetry troupes.
