Tholubommalata Puppet Show

Tholubommalata Puppet Show

Long before TVs or films were invented, Tholu Bommalata used to be one of the major forms of storytelling. The leather puppets, designed to look like mythological characters, would dance into the evening accompanied by the beat of traditional drums and a melodious narrative. This art form is most appreciated for its incredible history and exquisite beauty. You too can now witness this magical Tholu Bommalata (Leather Puppetry) art form LIVE. In the puppet show, you’ll get to see a mesmerizing performance including puppet skits accompanied by live music. The event will also have DIY stations where you can get a peek into the process of how these leather puppets are made by trying your hand at painting on parchment leather
