Tales From Old Japan

“Mountains are just like people – they have secrets, mysteries and stories to tell”

Come and hear enchanting, bewitching and hair-raising stories of magnificent Mount Iwate who blew hot and cold, the humble woodcutter and his beautiful but strange bride and the snorting, burping Ogre of Rashomon Gate.
These three delightful traditional Japanese tales are brought to life through inventive storytelling, puppetry and music.

The next performance will be in Brighton at the Japan Festival on Sunday 22nd September, 2013. More details to follow shortly.
