puppetry, glove puppetry, and marionette were introduced to Taiwan, blended
with local customs and beliefs, and had developed into a unique art form of
puppetry since, becoming three treasures of Taiwan. As time goes by,
regardless of a vivid performance in the hands of the masters, an incidental
music of live musicians’ pragmatic responses, or an audience of different
generation, or even the purpose of performance switched from offering thanks
to the gods to entertaining people, the significance of puppetry arts has
been gradually changing. Yunlin International Puppet Arts Festival was
founded in 1999, and Yunlin becomes puppets’ hometown in Taiwan, creating a
variety of performing schools. To establish the International Puppet Arts
Festival is to realize Yunlin as a cultural county, to carry forward the
traditions of fine art, and to promote international cultural exchanges. The
festival activities include inviting international puppet teams to perform,
and sponsoring the Golden Palm Award to encourage skill contests and
competitive performances of classic and innovative plays. In addition, it
combines with exhibitions of arts, cultural and creative works, and
installation art of agricultural product puppets, and promoting, encouraging,
teaching and experiencing glove puppetry to enable sustainable development
and to pass on the heritage of glove puppetry culture.
