String those kiddies along for some serious puppet fun this Chinese New Year! CENTRAL is bringing a puppet show created by French puppeteer Jean-Claude Dehix, to Asia for the first time. Dehix’s wildly popular display, which attracts millions of people each year in Paris, makes its debut in HK with daily puppet fun starting January 13th!
Just in time to celebrate the Chinese New Year, CENTRAL will be transformed into a whimsical world of animated puppet shows created by the legendary French master Jean-Claude Dehix. Taking place across The Landmark, Chater House and Alexandra House, the inaugural performance will play upon the theme of French Lifestyle, delicately interwoven with symbolic Chinese elements to create stories unique to the region’s heritage and tradition.
