1. What do you think is the storyline? What do you know about the sources of livelihood in Vietnam?
It tells of day-to-day living in rural Vietnam and Vietnamese folk tales that are told by grandparents to their grandchildren. It also highlights fishing, stories of the harvest and also festivals.
2. What is the purpose of the water puppet show? What other function does it serve besides entertainment?
It is to teach us about the lifestyle of the people who lived in Vietnam not so long ago and also to satisfy the spirits that controlled the aspects of the Vietnamese people’s lives.
3. Would Singapore benefit from its own ‘water puppet show’? Why yes/no?
No. Singapore is a multi-racial country unlike Vietnam so if we focus too much on a particular race, others might find it unfair.
