Abstract

Burmese marionette theatre was a valued entertainment of the courts that came to popular audiences as well until the 1950s. A revival of the art is being led by the Mandalay Marionettes, and a division of puppetry has been instituted at the Yangon (Rangoon) University of Culture. Nationalism and tourism are joint influences in spurring the return to this important art of Myanmar.
