About Teochew Puppet

關於潮州鐵枝木偶

潮州鐵枝木偶又被稱為:皮猴(潮話)、紙影(潮話),是潮州地區特有的傀儡戲。其係由平面剪影逐步經歷"陽窗紙影"(平面)、"圓身紙影"(立體)而形成現在的木偶。其操縱仍保持原始的紙影戲特點而稱為鐵枝木偶。

相傳木偶沒有人的七情六欲,是一具神聖的偶像,具有鎮鬼辟邪之用。至今許多廟宇賽願酬神之際都會先請戲班公演木偶戲擋煞消災,再演大戲。早期的木偶藝師都是男人領導,而女人則得避諱,說是會觸犯戲神。不過隨著時代變遷,木偶戲也像真人戲曲一樣慢慢地清一色被女人取代和反串了。

In Teochew dialect, Steel-Rod Puppet also known as [Pi Hou, ] literally translated as ‘skinny monkey’, or [Zhi Ying], literally translated as ‘the shadow of paper‘. The Steel-Rod puppet show is a unique art performance found in the Teochew region. The art have its origin lies in the shadow puppet, which was made of paper and performed in a 2D presentation. Later on, the 2D shadow puppet presentation was improved and evolved became a 3D presentation. The Steel Rod Puppet show was inspired by the 3D presentation and this is the reason for the art have preserved characteristics of the shadow puppet.

For the puppets did not possess the human emotional property, they are taken as a sacred icon, which could help human to get rid of the evil influences from the nature. Till to the date, the thought of the sacred puppet can be traced, by witnessing the Puppet show is played before the performance of the Teochew opera in the most of the religious occasion. In the past, the puppet show is lead only by the men, and women are prohibited from performing the art. It was thought that the puppet performance by the woman would provoke the anger of the deities. However, along with the concepts evolution in the opened society, there are more and more women participate in the puppet performance nowadays.

Ling Goh (born 1981), is the founder and director of Teochew Puppet and Opera House. Her mother, Toh Ai Hwa, established Kim Giak Low Choon Puppet Troupe in 1989, and in 2008 was recognized a Living Heritage Treasure by the Penang Heritage Trust.

Descended from an unbroken line of opera performers stretching back into the 19th-century, Ling had been exposed from the womb to an environment steeped in rich operatic tradition. Under the tutelage of experts, she has mastered the intricacies of iron-rod puppet manipulation as well as the nuances of each prominent archetype in Teochew opera. She is also adept in opera singing and is proficient in various opera instruments, such as drums and the dulcimer.

She established a live-size Teochew opera troupe in 2009, also named Kim Giak Low Choon, drawing together over thirty local, Thai and mainland Chinese performers and musicians. After four years of toil and triumph, the troupe disbanded in mid-2013 due to financial considerations. In their last two nights, however, they put on a triumphant swan song in PenangPAC, putting the beauty and liveliness of the art form on full display.

In 2014, a space named Mor Hun Club was introduced by Ms Lim Gaik Siang to Ling, for the foundation of Teochew Puppet and Opera House, a museum and performance space dedicated to the preservation and propagation of Teochew operatic arts, particularly Teochew puppet opera.
