There may be no Punch and Judy in Chinese puppet theatre, but there is Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, with his magical powers. He shares the volatile, carnivalesque character of his European counterparts, without engaging in criticism of society. The Other World reveals the extraordinary diversity of Chinese puppet theatre. Mysterious, miniature, and fascinating.

Curator: Frank Kouwenhoven, Director of the European Foundation for Chinese Music Research (CHIME)
