The Taiyuan Puppet Theatre Company performs traditional puppet theatre while finding new and creative ways to further enhance the beauty of this traditional art. The company of puppeteers, puppet carvers, designers, writers, and musicians create performances which promote understanding and appreciation of the classic Chinese theatre characters (prince, princess, old man, clown, etc.), traditional music, and fine artistry incorporated into the rich tradition of Taiwanese glove puppetry.

The company has performed in over 20 countries around the world, in many different venues, such as the Purcell Room and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Casa de Bellas Artes in Madrid, Casa Mila in Barcelona, 16th century churches in Holland, the city of Abakan in central Siberia, the Traditional Opera House in Hanoi, and also in the countryside of Cambodia and Central and South America.
