Settle on a comfy perch and enjoy a story about the friendship between a boy and a bird – told without dialogue through beautifully crafted puppets and live music.
Puppeteer Chen Ying-ching performs free shows for children at the Xiqu Centre with live music accompaniment by Lau Chi-bun. Inspired by the children’s book Tree of Birds by author and illustrator Susan Meddaugh, the puppets bring to life the story of a boy who nurses an injured bird back to health but then is reluctant to let his new friend fly away.
Featuring a cat as narrator, and a set design inspired by traditional Japanese tea rooms, the show provides an engaging, thought-provoking experience for children and parents alike.
