Founded in 2002 by performing artist Huang Wu-shan, Shan Puppet Theater performs with live musical accompaniment, masterful vocal characterizations, and hands-on demonstrations for audiences after the show.
Journey to the West recounts the sixteen-year pilgrimage of the Buddhist monk Hsüan-tsang (596-664), who journeyed to India to return lost Buddhist sutras to China. This hundred-chapter epic combines religious allegory with romance, fantasy, humor, and satire. It is one of the most popular literary works in East Asia and continues to be adapted into new media such as live-action and anime films.
