Histoire de la marionnette


Performances were held before temples,
on platforms erected for the purpose,
within wooden theatres of richly-sculpted camphor wood,
covered with gold leaf.

A reflection of temple architecture,
the theatre holds its own with dragon-covered columns,
title ribbons crammed with creatures,
signifying opulence and good luck.

Shows lasted four hours divided into two parts :
from 3-5:00 p.m.
and from 7-9:00 p.m.

They always began with a short propitiatory piece,

The Meeting of the Three Immortals.
(San Xian Hui).
