Event Description

Dogugaeshi is back! Japan Society's 2003 commission and Bessie Award-winning work by New York puppet artist Basil Twist kicks off this momentous anniversary season. A swirling whirlpool leads into a mystical world, where a white fox acts as your guide through ever-unfolding, infinitely intricate images of ancient and modern Japan. Inspired by a traditional stage mechanism once commonly used in Japanese puppet theater, Twist's Dogugaeshi is a cross-cultural collaboration with master shamisen player and experimental musician Yumiko Tanaka, whose multi-layered music collage embraces everything from traditional tunes to popular songs.
