Experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with a master Japanese artist. Join Koryu Nishikawa V, a 5th generation Master Puppeteer of the Kuruma Ningyō style, for a free Workshop in Traditional Japanese Puppetry. Kuruma Ningyō is the 160-year-old form of puppetry related to the three-person style of Bunraku. However, in Kuruma Ningyō, a puppet is operated by a single puppeteer sitting on a small wheeled cart. The puppeteer uses his hands and feet to manipulate the puppet’s arms, legs and head, all while rolling about the stage on the cart.
