Special workshop: The KURUMA NINGYO
Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
Chicago, IL
Share this event:

Nearly 150 years ago in the late Edo Period, Nishikawa Koryu I created Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo, a form of puppet theatre. The puppeteer sits on a small seat with roller wheels (rokuro kuruma) when operating the puppet (ningyo). This strategy allows the puppet and puppeteer to move in unison, providing greater flexibility and realism.
Nishikawa Koryu became the 5th Headmaster (iemoto) of the Kuruma Ningyo troupe in 1996, and has been studying Kuruma Ningyo puppetry since he was 13 years old. For more than fifteen years, he has been performing regularly throughout Japan and the world. Each year, he spends around 100 days on performance tours including the Czech Republic, Sweden, Saipan, Brazil, in far eastern Russia, and the United States.

*This is an open seating event.
