        Yeh-Shen is one of the stories from the Tang Dynasty literary sketches Miscellaneous Morsels form Youyang (simplifies Chinese:酉阳杂俎) &_ is recognized as the earliest variants of Cinderella in the world - 800 hundred years earlier than the French version. Yeh-Shen uses modern puppets to tell stories in a lively &_ warm way, which fills the stage with interesting &_ dynamic imaginations.

After the first attempt, ZiguZajg &_ China National Theatre for Children reached an agreement on further cooperation. This online performance is another attempt to deepen friendly exchanges &_ cooperation between the two sides.



        Under the background of the epidemic normalization, the invitation to participate in the online festival is innovation &_ upgrading of global exchange &_ cooperation on children’s theatre. By showing the world China’s excellent culture from the perspective of children’s theatre, to educate people &_ make the international community better perceive China.
