Japanese Bunraku: Performers Bring Puppets to Life

October 28, 2016

Once again, SVMA is teaming up with Sonoma Cultural Exchange to offer an extremely rare happening! Bunraku is an artistic and complex puppetry technique of Japan. It is accompanied by narrative chanting and shamisen music. Each nearly life-sized puppet requires three puppeteers to bring it to life. This performance features the world-renowned bunraku performer Kanroku and his Osaka-based Mokugu-sha company presenting both a work from the traditional canon and a new collaboration with Native American artist Sage Andrew Romero, an accomplished Hoop Dancer and storyteller. Be prepared for a rare treat, filled with dramatic myths and legends.
