The Champasak Shadow Puppets Theatre is a delight for the senses. The show is performed by a troupe of 14 artists, including musicians, singers, comedians, and puppeteers. The puppets themselves are works of art, dating back to the 1950s. The shows are held several nights a week during the dry season, from mid-October to mid-April.
The show is a combination of music, theater, and storytelling. The puppets are used to tell traditional Laotian stories, such as the Ramayana and the Mahabarata. The stories are accompanied by live music, which creates a truly immersive experience.
The show is also very funny. The comedians in the troupe use their wit and timing to keep the audience entertained. The show is a great way to learn about Laotian culture and history, and it is also a lot of fun.
