Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo Performance and Workshop

Friday, March 1, 2019

Student Program
Friday, March 1, 10:30 AM – 12 PM

Koryu Nishikawa, grand master of Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo puppet theater, presents a special performance and workshop of Japanese puppet theater for high school students. Enjoy a traditional performance based on classic Japanese literature, then learn about the unique mechanics of kuruma ningyo puppets in a hands-on workshop.

Kuruma ningyo, literally meaning “puppets on wheels,” refers to Nishikawa’s unique technique in which the puppet sits atop a three-wheeled dolly, adding an element of dynamism and power to characters.

Don’t miss this rare chance to see a full-scale production with chanters and shamisen players, specially adapted for high school audiences. Space is limited, and offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Pricing:
NYC Public and Private Schools: $15 per student
NYC Title 1 Public Schools: $4 per student
