Akutagawa will premiere in January 2023 at the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, and Wabash College will be the next venue for this puppetry performance. Tom Lee and Koryu Nishikawa will tell the story using figurative puppets inspired by Japanese traditional puppetry (Bunraku) as well as projections, shadows, and live feed video of manipulated objects. This is a rare opportunity to see Bunraku puppetry performed by a Japanese master in America. The performance will be in Japanese and will include a translator.
