For Whom is Glove puppetry Performed Hsu ChiCheng
It’s deafening sound of gongs and drums. In front of the temple
It’s warm performing glove puppetry on the stage
A good theatre! Is it a good theatre?
The spectators is scarce to almost zero
It runs wildly toward me all the situation of yore:
It’s almost in front of the temple too
Many spectators are there, there are all adult, child, male, female
Bustling and exciting, even to be jam-packed with people sometimes
The sounds which the retailers shout their wares rise here and subside there
There are performing with bustling and exciting on the stage
There are many appearances of the puppets
There are gentle and frail scholars, they who recite poems and ci poem
There are strong and powerful knights
Even there are the animal fur in their bodies and horns on their heads
There are either takes arms or not
Honest and upright fight with the oppose
Hold weapon, throw up sword light, even cause death the oppose with not near him
The winners pursue and attack closely who filled with pride elation
The fails may counterattack or escape hurriedly
It likes the fabricate thing which just come about outside the earth
Makes trouble into bubbling with noise everywhere
Rise here and subside there the spectator’s mood follow theatrical programme
It turns to television hereafter
It’s more fantastic than before in the plot
It’s more monstrous than before in the figure
Makes a great sensation that the children to answer the question of history test:
Responded by mistake that the nation hero is Se En Wen
And I match my lunch with glove puppetry performance
However, what about now? The situation of now is right before my eyes:
Though it’s warm performing on the stage
The spectators are as few as it can be and without bustling
For whom is thus glove puppetry performed?
Someone said that the puppetry performance now was performed for God
What’s the reason? Is it the time carry away the theatrical programme?
Is it the skill difference the performer?
Is it the plot isn’t fantastic?
Is it the figure not monstrous?
Or is it the spectator is cold-blooded?
Or is it the theatrical programme comes from what dimensional space of universe?
No one can give the answer.@
