Presented with Wesleyan University Center for the Arts and the Japan Society

For the first time in nearly two decades, the National Bunraku Theatre returns to the United States for a five-city tour organized by the Japan Society. The traditional puppetry theatre of Japan was created in the 1700s as a popular entertainment in Osaka. Strikingly lifelike, each puppet requires three highly trained puppeteers to create the illusion made possible with delicate, realistic movements. This stunning art form honors the past while sharing stories that connect to the present. The program will include two quintessential masterpiece scenes from the company’s repertoire.
