Myanmar Art Preformance

With a long lasting history, Myanmar has unique traditional arts and performances. These dances have existed from pre-Buddhist times when worship was performed with dance. Dance movements were strongly influenced by classical Indian and Thai dance. Myanmar dance is rather vigorous and requires some difficult acrobatic feats. It is also quite decorous; male and female dancers do not touch when dancing together. Young beginners are taught the ka-bya-lut, a basic traditional dance.

Puppetry is the most popular and interesting show in Myanmar arts and culture. The expert manipulators will control puppets. They also converse and joke the humorous stories through their puppet show to the delight of the audience. Usually, at least four manipulators take responsibility in a show. They use handling rods and strings at the back of the curtain and give voice to the puppets.
