Bunraku, Japanese puppet theater, creates a magical world where puppets evoke human emotions so real that the artificiality of the puppet theater is completely forgotten.
The puppet master, Kanya Yoshida, will guide us in appreciating the sound of the shamisen, instruct us in how it takes three people to bring one puppet to life, and enlighten us about the Jōruri chanting. This explanatory presentation will be followed by a performance of the famous scene from Datemusume Koi no Higanoko.
