Yung Shing Le Shadow Puppet Theatre Troupe Of Taiwan

Yung Shing Le invites you to experience Taiwanese shadow puppetry with performances of three different shadow plays: The Sandbag Trilogy, The Mountain of Flames (an excerpt from the Journey to the West) and The Proud Return. The plays will feature authentic narration in Taiwanese with live music.

With an emphasis on preserving the traditional art form, this century-old family theater has handed down traditional practices and stories through five generations, while also infusing modern techniques and original stories to keep this art form relevant to modern audiences.

This rare opportunity is made possible through a partnership with the Michigan Taiwanese American Organization, as well as the Taipei Culture Center in New York, the Detroit Institute of Arts/Friends of Asian Arts and Culture, the Ann Arbor District Library, and the U-M Stearns Collection of Musical Instruments.
