(Pop Culture) Wayang Kulit Puppets Explained

If Darth Vader, Superman, or Wonder Woman were wayang kulit characters, how might their costumes and personalities be reimagined? Fusion Wayang Kulit, a Malaysian troupe that is reviving Kelantanese shadow puppetry by merging it with stories from popular film and comics culture, is attempting to answer this question through a YouTube series called “Puppet Explained”. Best known for their “Peperangan Bintang” show, which retells Star Wars through the art of wayang kulit, each video in their new series focuses on one puppet from their shows and explains the inspirations and designs behind them. We speak with Fusion Wayang Kulit’s founder Tintoy Chuo to learn more.
