Glove puppetry has long been an important part of Taiwanese culture. It was introduced to the island from the southern region of Fujian Province in China about 250 years ago. At that time, people went to temple festivals to enjoy puppet shows. The shows’ live music, colorful costumes, graceful puppet movements, and familiar scripts based on classic Chinese stories easily captured the audiences’ interest.
