Monkey King with Tears of Joy Theater


I wish I had taken more shots during this rehearsal, from January  2014, I built this show in 1994 at Tears Of Joy with the incomparable puppeteer Yang Feng a 7th generation puppet master, and I mean master in every sense of the word. Beautiful puppets with an amazing control system he invented during the  tumultuous Chinese Cultural Revolution. He passed the secret system on to me and now I’m the holder of the knowledge.
