"I am heir to five generations of Chinese glove puppeteers, and the last in a direct line of father-son puppeteers. I wanted to talk about transmission, and this piece would be both the story of my family, the Yeung family, and the more universal and atemporal story of Chinese Puppetry." (Yeung Faї)
Hand Stories invites us to dive into the world of an extraordinary family, to go to the heart of an imaginary realism. Made up of a series of wordless sketches, visual poems and living sounds, these Hand Stories are unique and complex, intimate and universal.
