Frankie and team will be performing at the Second International Marionette Festival 2010 in Hanoi, Vietnam this upcoming week from 4 – 9 September. Featuring more than 19 groups from all over the world, Mascots and Puppets Specialists will be premiering our new production, Streets of Singapore, at this festival. Our competition performance will be at the Vietnam Puppetry Theatre (pictured above) on 6 Sep at 9pm.
As some of you may remember, Frankie was awarded the Silver Award for Best Artist (Group) and the Special Prize for the Preservation of National Art at the First International Marionette Festival 2008.
Vietnam has a deep heritage in the puppetry arts, and the team is looking forward to the festival and the opportunity to observe and interact with the artists from all around the world.
We would like to thank the following organisations for their kind support of this trip:
