The Happy Prince is a famous short story written by Oscar Wilde in 1888. Through the interaction between a little swallow and the happy prince, it elegantly describes the unpredictability of real life.
First adapted by Taiwan’s The Puppet and its Double Theater in 2000, this heartwarming fable has since become a classic in the company’s repertoire. The Happy Prince features the “rod marionette’ popular in the Czech Republic, modified with a special string for gestures. Two puppeteers manage the elaborate props and puppets, bringing their charm and warmth to the stage. The story is both happy and sad. An imaginary story that is true to life, it will make you laugh and cry.
This September, we invite you to a small northern European town to share in the tender tale of the gilded prince and his loyal winged friend. Please enjoy this truly fabulous fable.

关于无独有偶工作是剧团 About the Puppet & Its Double Theater
The Puppet and Its Double Theater was launched in September 1999. This group is dedicated to an experimental approach and a belief that all possible things can be formed into puppets, exploring the possibilities of puppetry in modern theater. With this belief and this dedication, the group puts efforts to expand a room for modern puppetry in contemporary performance art. The Puppet and Its Double is known for filling puppets with souls and looking into the interactions between real persons and puppets so as to find new interpretations of puppet performance. The group incorporates various forms of puppetry, including glove puppets, string puppets, rod puppets, table-top puppets; its performance also draw techniques and inspirations from shadow theater and co-staging actors and puppets. With professional and delicate puppetry skills, creative design, and poetic presentation on stage, the Puppet and Its Double brings forth an imaginary space that humans alone cannot realize. The Puppet and Its Double is the manifestation of the value of marionette. With this merit the group has received numerous invitations to perform at international art festivals and is a distinctive group of contemporary Taiwanese theater that crosses many boundaries.
