Event Description

U-M Center for World Performance Studies visiting puppet artist Tom Lee presents a special workshop exploring Japanese traditional puppetry techniques that have had an enormous influence on world puppetry performance. Following a short talk on bunraku-style puppetry, participants will have a hands-on opportunity to handle traditional Japanese puppets and draw back the curtain on how these beautiful puppets are brought to life through skillful puppetry technique. Tom Lee has appeared as a puppeteer in War Horse at Lincoln Center Theatre and Madama Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera, in addition to extensive work in Japan with his mentor, Koryu Nishikawa V.  

This event is in partnership with the University of Michigan Center for World Performance Studies.
