Vietnamese National Puppet Theatre (VN) Decor Decor

This year the Vietnam National Puppetry Theatre will come to Sziget! This Water Puppet Show is really what it sounds like: a puppet show but on water. If you attend one of these theatre shows, you will see the most amusing and rather confusing show of puppets making their way across shallow pools of water with the master puppeteers well hidden behind curtains and stages.

Water puppetry has made a contribution to enriching the traditional arts and is a pride of the national culture of Vietnam. In fact, the secret to how these talented puppeteers make their puppets move so flawlessly and on cue on top of the water while seeming blind from behind a screen is a closely guarded secret till date.


Walkabouts Decor Decor

The Walkabouts are coming! These bands, strange creatures, aliens from distant places will be popping up around Sziget at the most random, unexpected places and times. Performers are coming from all over the world, to keep you entertained. So don’t be surprised if you come across these unusual characters!
