Part of BAMkids

Co-presented by The Jim Henson Foundation and BAMcinématek

This original production artfully fuses traditional Chinese and contemporary Western shadow puppet theater techniques. Drawing from China’s 2,000-year-old history and based in Chinese folktales and literature, Tiger Tales is narrated by a wise old rabbit, telling stories to her young granddaughter. Humorously exploring issues of power and survival, and with puppets based on antique leather shadow figures from CTW’s extensive collection, this performance is a feast for the eye as well as the mind.  

Directed by Kuang-Yu Fong & Stephen Kaplin
Written by Kuang-Yu Fong, Stephen Kaplin and Ron Sopyla.
