Amazing puppetry by the sweetest man who carries on the tradition of his father and grandfather who taught him! Puppets are all made by his family. Only 5000 kyats, shows at 7pm and 8:30pm every evening. Small, intimate theater. Tea is served. 100% worth the...More
wonderful show. it was such a fun. aung will tell you the history of this place, his family, and the history of puppetery in Myanamar, its a pitty that this is becoming a dying art after such an influence in Myanmar culture.
Mr Aunt's puppet show really showcases the rich history through 12 acts of different puppets ranging from a horse to orge. He has also a high level of English so it's great to get further insights to his art. We are there as a family...More
We went to see Aung's show last night as we're in Myanmar to experience the culture as well as see the sights, well we certainly weren't disappointed.
Firstly Aung is a master puppeteer, 4th generation and I don't know where else you're going to find...More
A delightful performance of puppetry in a small theatre with room for possibly maximum 20 people. It was just wonderful to watch the puppet master, a 32 year veteran of the art passed down through 3 generations of his family, make each puppet come alive....More
This lovely man, a fourth generation puppet master, is keeping this dying art form of Burmese marionettes alive. Sure, the show is fairly simple, but the skill to make these puppets move is impressive to see in person. He'll welcome you into his garage and...More
If you haven’t saw a puppet show this is the time to do it. A tradition that’s been passing in their family for more then 4 decades. Mr. Aung is so pasionnate, you can see him dancing with his puppet. Very nice show that we...More

I sure don't remember how much I paid for the puppet show but I know it was very reasonable (under $10 but how much under I don't know). The "theater" is very small with just a few benches. Beautiful puppets, that are... More
I sure don't remember how much I paid for the puppet show but I know it was very reasonable (under $10 but how much under I don't know). The "theater" is very small with just a few benches. Beautiful puppets, that are hanging on the walls, are available for sale. It is a one-man, one puppet at a time show - really giving a demonstration of the traditional "dances" - it is not a full-fledged puppet "opera". But - it is really worth going if you are interested in the history of this art form that is quickly fading away (few young people are learning the art). The puppeteer offers tea and little candies during the show.
