Kuruma Ningyo Puppetry Demonstration

February 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join us for a lively demonstration of Kuruma ningyo, or “puppets on wheels” by Koryu Nishikawa V, grand master of Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo Puppet Theater. Nishikawa’s unique technique has the puppeteers perform sitting atop a three-wheeled dolly. This event is open to all ages and will be held in the Studio.

Immediately following the demonstration, join Koryu Nishikawa V for a guided workshop where you will work with these traditional puppets and become the puppeteer. The Workshop is open to ages 5 and up, and is free with admission. Space is limited, so reserve your space at this link.

This program is presented in partnership with The Japan-American Society of Pennsylvania.
