Water Puppet Theatre, Hanoi, Capital City of Vietnam
The puppets are made out of wood and then lacquered. The shows are performed in a waist-deep pool.

A large rod supports the puppet under the water and is used by the puppeteers, who are normally hidden behind a screen, to control them. Many of the acts have spoken dialog as well, but it isn't necessary to understand the words in order to appreciate the scenes.
