Did You Know That ...?

  • Troupe founder Sun Chen-chieh acquired puppetry skills from Jan Dvorak, an influential puppeteer and director in the field of modern Czech puppetry. Sun was also mentored by German master puppeteer Albrecht Roser during the 1990s.

  • The versatile troupe has mastered different forms of puppetry, such as marionettes, paper puppets, glove puppets, shadow puppets, stick puppets, and masks, showing the limitless scope of contemporary puppetry.

  • In 2015, Puppet Beings staged "The Paper Play (紙要和你在一起)” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The creative production was touted by Critical Dance's David Mead as 'an absolutely delightful and thoroughly engaging double bill of puppet theatre … just sit back and marvel at how much character the team get out of their puppets.'
