Once upon a time, recently has a one young group to not knowing about it string puppet came together to do what they love, that is the string puppet of Thai. Do you know than a string puppet is a beautiful and have a life on the stage. How the string puppet these have a life up?
We started from zero isn’t knowledge about how to control or made a string puppet, but we know we fall in love this string puppet very much. We find studies about string puppet from the Internet, because in our country not have a book about this. We create a string puppet with some good ways some mistake but mostly wrong. But we are unflinching until one day we discovered how to create a string puppet of ourselves.
When the beginning to be a create string puppet, we made a British controls style, because its suit with our string puppet to can stand and bend to. Later we extend the controls back for pull buttocks and hips the string puppet standing to look like Thai people usually bend forward and can to salute (to raise the hands pressed together as a sign of respect). Now we have adapted to pull the legs behind so that the string puppet can fly, because the Thai fairy tale have a characters are fantasy.
However Thai people, some people say our string puppet not pretty elegant and look at poor. But we are proud that build them with our own hands. A string puppet was representing the expression of thought intended to communicate with our audiences of all ages, through content that is good intended to society until the day we are five years old with love and commitment with all our string puppets.
