Hiss and Arf: Extended Family Edition

Puppetry | Family Fun
By Flying Group Theatre x Puppet on the Workbench (Taiwan)

Dogs versus cats. A rivalry as old as time. Are you a dog’s best friend or a cat’s loyal servant? 

Hiss and Arf is a contemporary puppetry performance that employs traditional Taiwanese glove puppetry techniques. This wordless performance portrays the delightful and humorous life between an owner and his pets.

Cats hiss when they are angry, while dogs arf! With a cat on one hand and a dog on the other, who knows what wacky adventures the puppeteer will embark on with his furry duo? What comical and amusing things will happen in this furry world?

Since its premiere in 2018, Hiss and Arf has been performed throughout Taiwan and at the ISHARA International Puppet Theatre Festival in India. 

These two additional performances are especially for families, and promise a fun-filled hour of animal puppetry.

貓生氣了,嘶嘶!狗也生氣了,嗷嗷!
當操偶師變成了毛孩子們的主人,一手是貓,一手是狗。
在這個毛茸茸的世界,會産生什麼崩潰又有趣的事呢?

不論你是貓派還是狗派,快來跟著一起嘶嘶嗷嗷吧!

《嘶嘶嗷嗷》是一出運用傳統布袋戲操作技巧的當代偶戲。透過人、偶同台演出,無需語言,將主人與貓狗之間的趣味生活展現的淋漓盡致!不僅如此,觀眾還能從這部作品當中發現台灣傳統布袋戲的魅力與多樣性。

自2018年首演以來,《嘶嘶嗷嗷》也曾在台灣各地以及印度ISHARA國際偶戲藝術節出演。

值得一提的是,《嘶嘶嗷嗷》團隊也特別增設兩場適合闔家觀賞的《嘶嘶嗷嗷:親子特別版》,為小朋友和家長帶來充滿樂趣的動物手套偶演出。

Artist Bio

Puppet on the Workbench

After participating in several large-scale puppet shows, puppet designer Liang Mong Han and puppeteer Chen Chia-Hao joined forces to establish Puppet on the Workbench, focusing on small-scale puppet shows. The group is built upon the discovery that the most attractive part of puppetry is the infinite imagination that can be triggered by delicate manipulation. By applying traditional puppet manipulation techniques to contemporary puppet creation, they seek to discover more diverse aspects of Taiwanese puppetry. Examples of their works include Hiss and Arf and Planting a Baby, which premiered in 2018 and 2020 respectively.

偶人工作桌

在參與了多部大型偶戲的製作與演出之後,戲偶設計梁夢涵與偶戲演員陳佳豪發現,偶戲最吸引人的地方,是透過細緻的操作,引發觀眾的無限想像。因此,出於對偶戲藝術的熱愛,以及為了提供觀眾更加深刻的偶戲體驗,兩人決定攜手成立「偶人工作桌」,專注於創作小型偶戲。

偶人工作桌的目標不僅僅是製作精緻的偶戲,更希望能在每一個創作中尋找偶的存在意義,重新詮釋人偶關係的可能性。此外,偶人工作桌也將傳統偶戲的操作技術,運用於當代偶戲創作中,試圖尋找台灣偶戲的多元面貌
