What to Expect

Enter the world of Joe Louis Thai Puppet Theatre and watch the traditional Thai puppet show which had been well preserved by Jo Louis's team, together with learning a story which is related to Thai culture.

Now the only puppet troupe in Thailand that can lay claim to being direct descendants of the founder and inheritor of Thai classical small puppet theatre of over one century ago, the art was almost lost during World War II, and was only revived 50 years after. 

Each of the intricately detailed puppets require 3 people to operate, but the result are dreamlike movements. In addition to the props, these skillful puppeteers are dressed in black to increase your immersion. As the performance progresses, you may even forget that they are there!

Still a niche art that few are willing to dedicate their lives to, you may never get to see this anywhere else. Check out their latest performance, "Hanuman: The Great Warrior" now!

Duration: 1 hour
