Joe Louis traditional Thai puppet theatre started at 1901 like Thai movie for people such as King’s family and high-ranking officials of government as a kind of entertainment. Joe Louis Puppet Theatre, the last of the kingdom’s traditional Thai small puppets troupe, was awarded the “Best Traditional Performance Award” from among competitors from 44 countries over the world at the 10th World Festival of Puppet Art held in Prague in 2006. The Joe Louis puppet play is performed by each puppet being controlled by three puppeteers at the same time with all of whom appearing on stage with the puppet thereby creating highly animated, life-like movements. This enables the puppets to move or dance gracefully. The Joe Louis Puppet Theatre is the only ensemble of Thai theatrical puppeteers currently. The performance is a showcase of Thailand’s cultural heritage and reflects the active efforts of the team to preserve this exotic art form.
