Performances entail the manipulation of puppets, with at least one moving part, behind illuminated screens. The puppets, essentially, elaborately carved stencils, are fashioned from cow hide and make popular souvenirs. Visits can be made to Suchart House to see how such puppets are laboriously hand-crafted.
