WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bunraku, Japan's internationally renowned puppet theater from Osaka, returns to Boston for the first time in more than thirty years in a presentation by the Japan Society of Boston. One of Japan's most celebrated traditional art forms, Bunraku traces its origins to the 16th-century, and developed alongside Kabuki in the vigorous urban culture of early-modern Japan. Each puppet is 3/4-life size and is manipulated by three puppeteers, moving together in such seamless coordination that the puppets seem human in all their actions and emotions. A Bunraku performance is a feast for the eye and the imagination!
