Puppetry artists Tom Lee and Koryu Nishikawa V (co-creators of Shank’s Mare at Asia Society Texas Center) will present a special workshop exploring Japanese traditional puppetry. 

Nishikawa, a fifth generation Japanese puppet master, will illustrate and explain his unique tradition called kuruma ningyo or cart puppetry. Participants will have a hands-on opportunity to handle traditional and contemporary puppets and learn basic puppetry techniques. In addition, Japanese musician Chieko Hara and American composer Bill Ruyle will demonstrate how their different musical traditions “speak” to each other in the production of Shank’s Mare. This rare and exciting opportunity will also include traditional Japanese puppeteer Ryukumi Nishikawa and the U.S. company of Shank’s Mare including CB Goodman, Josh Rice, Justin Perkins, Takemi Kitamura, Chris Carcione, and Tomas Delvalle.
