JOE LOUIS PUPPET THEATRE
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

If it weren’t for master puppeteer Sakorn Yangkhieosod (or Joe Louis as he was better known), the traditional art of Thai puppetry would have died out a while ago. Using two-feet-high ornate hun lakhon lek (small theatrical puppets) manipulated by three people moving as one, he has kept audiences spellbound with classic tales such as the Hindu epic “Ramayana.” The must-see show continues, despite his passing, at the Asiatique night market on the river.
