The Essence of Taiwanese Culture – Taiwan Glove Puppetry
 
HSINCHU, TAIWAN (TTNews) – Taiwanese glove puppetry, also known as budaisi, was long one of the people’s primary forms of entertainment. It not only provides entertainment for people of all walks of life, but it also plays an important role in the essence of Taiwanese culture. In recent year, the performance and presentation of glove puppetry has advanced by leaps and bounds. The refined production of puppets makes the idolized characters more full of vitality. Right now people not only can watch the glove puppetry drama on the TV, but even foreigners find this traditional form of entertainment quite intriguing and fascinating!

Guo Da Pili Boutique, situated on Beimen Old Street in Hsinchu, always attracts passers-by’s attention. The shop features an impressive collection of refined and lifelike glove puppet dolls. The detail of each doll’s face structure and outfit is worth all the praises. The owner Mr. Tsang personally has a passionate interest in collecting glove puppets. He can immediately think of the classic lines of the famous glove puppet drama and improvise a short play right away. Mr. Tsang mentioned that such typical Taiwanese culture should be passed on from generation to generation.
