East meets West
Bobby Garcia and Chari Arespacochaga directs. Both were in Hawaii last year to take Asian Puppetry workshops, which will help them create many of the sea creatures.
“We are creating Little Mermaid unlike any other. It will be an exciting fusion of East meets West elements. Our underwater kingdom will be completely Asian in theme and our above water world will be Western, representing two different worlds. We will also be using traditional forms of Asian and Western puppetry including Wayang shadow play, bunraku, nang kaloung and western hand puppetry," says Garcia.
