The appearance is created of the puppets moving over water.The origin of this form of puppetry dates back seven hundred years when the rice fields would flood and the villagers would entertain each other, eventually resulting in puppet show competitions between villages.Puppetry is a form of theatre or performance that involves the manipulation of puppets – inanimate objects, often resembling some type of human or animal figure, that are animated or manipulated by a human called a puppeteer. The puppeteer uses movements of her hands, arms, or control devices such as rods or strings to move the body, head, limbs, and in some cases the mouth and eyes of the puppet.The puppeteer often speaks in the voice of the character of the puppet, and then synchronizes the movements of the puppet's mouth with this spoken part.Some forms of puppetry may have originated as long ago as 3000 years BC.Puppetry takes many forms, but they all share the process of animating inanimate performing objects to tell a story.In Taiwan, budaixi puppet shows, somewhat similar to the Japanese Bunraku, occur with puppeteers working in the background or underground.Some very experienced puppeteers can manipulate their puppets to perform various stunts, for example, somersaults in the air.
Bunraku developed out of Shinto temple rites and gradually became a highly sophisticated form of puppetry.
A hand puppet is controlled by one hand which occupies the interior of the puppet and moves the puppet around (Punch and Judy puppets are familiar examples of hand puppets).
