Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Puppetry in Beijing and Hangzhou, China, Hong Kong,


Hi Amy,
For puppet shows in Hong Kong, check out the website of the Leisure and
Cultural Services Department which is the major sponsor of public puppet
shows.
To visit puppetry groups, you can try to meet up with Simon Wong, artistic
director of Ming Ri Educational Institute which is very strong in puppetry.
Simon is connected with UNIMA (International and China) and may put you into
contact with groups in Beijing, Hangzhou etc.
His email address is  info-AT-mingri.org.hk
To meet puppeteers, you may also try to visit the Jockey Club Creative Arts
Theatre. Check it out - it is an old factory turned into an artist village
with more than a 100 groups/artists here in a 8 storied building. Among the
groups is the Centre for Community Cultural Development which is run by
myself (I have been involved with giant puppetry, Czech marionettes etc.
with persons with diabilities), Hoi Chiu - mask and puppets whose email
address is hoichiu-AT-alltheatrecom.com, Hong Kong Puppet and Shadow Art whose
artist director is Wong Fai, email wongfai-AT-hkpsac.org and Mime Touch whose
artistic director is Wong Kwok Chung - they do mime and puppetry and glass -
email info-AT-mime.hk
There are of course many other puppetry groups or artists involved in
puppetry...I guess you won't have time to explore it all.
Cheers,
Mok Chiu Yu
