Huayi 华艺节 2022 The Universe According to Niu

January 13 - March 6

A puppetry production for children, The Universe According to Niu is a SISTIC Live Stream featuring an array of lively characters.

There was once a corrupt kingdom where rich fools could become court officials through bribery. An intelligent young man, Niu, encountered this injustice when he failed his exam despite getting all the answers right.

When the country was attacked by a neighbouring kingdom, none of the officials had any solutions to thwart this invasion. Would Niu use his intelligence to turn the tide in favour for his beloved kingdom or would he be disheartened by his failure to become a court official? Follow Niu as he learns about courage, resilience and the importance of doing the right thing at the right time.

The Universe According to Niu is told through a mix of modern and traditional Chinese puppetry. Young children will learn about Ox-related Chinese idioms in a fun and engaging way.

  • Approximately 45 minutes, with no intermission.
