A short, unedited clip of the Luanxian shadow puppet troupe performing from their home in Hebei Province, China. Chinese shadow puppetry is usually performed at night, using a lantern as the light source - here you see them performing in a rare sunlit show. Within the camera frame, you can see the singer and the puppeteer both referencing the script just below the puppet screen. Luanxian (Luanzhou puppets) is one of the few Chinese shadow traditions to use scripts directly in their performances.

Enjoy!
