Paris (VNA) - Vietnamese water puppeteers have recently finished a 5-day tour to six cities in France to introduce the traditional art to French audiences.

They performed 36 shows during the tour to Lyon, Paris, Mougins, Sainte-Maxime, Marne-la-Vallee, and Mulhouse.

Deputy Director of the Vietnam Water Puppet Theatre Vuong Tat Loi said the shows feature the daily lives of Vietnamese farmers and Vietnam’s myths.

The programme is part of the annual 21st Imagination Festival hosted by the World Cultures Institute.
