"...A Japanese Monty Python with a Beatles-like spirit..."
One of Japan’s most popular mukashi banashi folktales comes to life through the playful interpretation of beloved all-male contemporary dance company Condors, led by Ryohei Kondo. Chock-full of high-octane dance, spirited music, kamishibai (picture storytelling), colorful costumes and props and lots of humor, Hanasaka Jiisan, which recognizes the importance of honesty and kindness, promises to delight all ages.
As a perfect prelude, New York-based Japanese puppet artist Maiko Kikuchi offers her witty PINK BUNNY, a parade of the most unlikely of objects assembled in a work to remind us that nothing is impossible.
Tickets: $28/$23 Japan Society members.
