LCSD launches online puppet programme "Blue Fruit Tree in the Fog" (with photos)

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) launched a free online puppet programme, "Blue Fruit Tree in the Fog" by Fantasy Puppet Theatre, in its "Cheers!" Series, offering audiences of all ages a story with endless joy through ingenious puppets and props. The first two episodes are now available on the department's Edutainment Channel.

     There are three episodes in the story, "Blue Fruit Tree in the Fog", in which Moly the mole, a skilful potter, receives a parcel from Kuma the bear one day. Kuma asks Moly to help mend a broken plate and invites him to come to his place. Kuma requests Moly to pick some blue fruit on his way for decoration of the cake. To find the blue fruit, the timid Moly enters the forest at night, embarking on an exciting and foggy journey.
     Featuring wood-carved rod marionettes designed by puppeteer Chen Ying-ching, the programme with detailed and realistic props transposes audiences to the miniature world of marionettes. In addition to an adventurous and warm journey, audiences can appreciate the superb craftsmanship of puppetry through the story.
