    I guess Tim is looking for something along the lines of wayang kulit, but of a Chinese traditional type. Or it could be those done by suspension of strings.

    check out today's Sunday Times Life section pg 9. Troupe name is 'Xin Yi Sheng'. But did not mention their schedule. Even she does not think it will last another 20 years. Quite unfortunate.
