Thanks for submitting this link - it, sounds like a fascinating show and brings back memories of
when my wife and I lived in Taiwan for a couple of years teaching English and studying Mandarin
Chinese. It reminds me specifically of the stories people told about playing mahjong on the sly,
quietly shuffling the tiles on warm summer nights, hoping that the local beat cop wouldn't hear
them clinking together through the open windows. (But just in case, many tables had hidden
compartments where the tiles and money could be quickly concealed if someone came knocking on the
door - at least that was the story our friends told us.)

Taiwan was also where I first became interested in the mechanics of puppetry and puppet making
years ago, watching traditional street shows given by itinerant puppet companies...
