Chicago Puppet Fests presents:

The Koryū Nishikawa Troupe: AKUTAGAWA


World Premiere

The Koryū Nishikawa Troupe, creators of Shank’s Mare, brings a collaborative puppet performance by Chicago-based puppet artist Tom Lee and Japanese traditional puppeteer Koryū Nishikawa V. This beautifully detailed production combines traditional kuruma ningyo puppetry with contemporary staging to share a Western perspective on the life of Ryunosuke Akutagawa, the father of the Japanese short story form.
