A MOVING CASTLE OF THE JAPANESE PUPPETRY

An Expedition With Nori SAWA From NINGYO-JORURI Through The Figure Theatre into the Future Art

They could also learn the basic concept about the Japanese style- costume of puppets, its rich variation of colours, material and the combinations of wearing system, to make different characters on the stage. Design is always deeply connected with the theatrical functions.
