They performed 36 shows during the tour to Lyon, Paris, Mougins, Sainte-Maxime, Marne-la-Vallee, and Mulhouse.

Deputy Director of the Viet Nam Water Puppet Theatre Vuong Tat Loi said the shows feature the daily lives of Vietnamese farmers and Viet Nam’s myths.

The programme is part of the annual 21st Imagination Festival hosted by the World Cultures Institute.

Gaffagua Benanti, the coordinator at the show in Paris, expressed her admiration for the traditional Vietnamese art, saying its unique layout and music enthralled audiences.
