For our trip, we went to the Laoshe Teahouse to watch a shadow puppet performance. The children thoroughly enjoyed watching three different shows that were brilliantly performed by members of the Teahouse and all told a different story.
After the performances, the children were lucky to get to control the puppets in small groups. This gave them the opportunity to understand how the puppets were controlled and the level of difficulty it takes to control them which was not as easy as the performers made it look! Overall, a successful and fun trip!
