Theatre ∙
14-17 February @ The Dolphin Theatre ∙
Presented by: Yeung Fai ∙


An epic story of three generations of a family and the fascinating history of 20th century China told by the hands of a master artist.

Traditional puppetry skills and modern multimedia effects are expertly combined in an entertaining show that, like the life story it tells, is full of sadness and laugh-out-loud humour. Puppet master Yeung Fai stages his personal story with the help of a series of exquisitely hand-crafted figures. With skilful manipulation tigers, dragons, concubines and clashing warriors come to life before your eyes. Join them for an emotional and poetic journey told with a new take on an age-old artform.
