The various production, in Zhengzhou, Xiamen China the various puppet showcases brought out the theme of puppetry through the ages as the shoots from various streets were compared to that of produced at the Zhengzhou school.
Through the film produced, there was a clear contrast that came about in the puppetry in the street and that in the schools by the professional. The film produced also showcased the culture of china in the process(Goodlander2012).
The genre of puppet show has in recent years been largely ignored. This may be due to the emergence of motion picture films and animated movies. Before that, however, puppet shows used to be the best source of entertainment to many people. The developments along this line of performance have grown during the 20ththrough the 21stcentury. they are done in theatres rather than in the streets during the olden times. Taking a case study of the shadow puppet show in china, the development through the years is phenomenal. In fact, it is a form of puppetry that is so unique and simple both in production and development (Fleischman et al 1990).
Puppetry is defined as a form of theatre or performance that involves the manipulation of puppets. It is very ancient and is believed to have originated 3000 years BC(Fleischman et al 1990). This form of art developed throughout the 20th century in a variety of ways. Supported by the parallel development of cinema, television and other filmed media it now reaches a larger audience than ever. Another development, starting at the beginning of the century, was the belief that puppet theatre, despite its popularity and folk roots, could speak to adult audiences with an adult, and experimental voice, and reinvigorate the high art tradition of actors theatre.
Puppetry is now probably more familiar through television and movies rather than through live performance, but this still flourishes throughout the world. In the world of theatre, puppetry continues to be influential, and despite its ‘outsider’ status acts as an invigorating and rejuvenating influence on its mainstream relative, and feeds through the object and physical theatre many of the most exciting developments in contemporary theatre.
