I really like the traditional marionette performances. Luckily i have seen a few that weren't staged for foreigners but were done in a private setting which made them extra special. But i have to admit that i did enjoy the combined marionette - dancer performance at the Karaweik a lot to. In that performance a person mimics the doll in a dance. Beautiful. Now that i'm writing this tip down i realise that i can't actually tell you much about Burmese Marionette plays. I've probably spend too much time enjoying the show in order to ask the questions. I'll try and correct that next chance i have of seeing a performance.
