Bunraku has almost one thousand years history, and in EDO period (1603-1887) they reached the top of the cultural popularity in Japan. This was achieved by their invention of the special manipulation technique, which was the method for three actors to manipulate one puppet on the stage. In this workshop, using body movements, bunraku puppets and some simple material around us, we try to find our own small but new approach to the Bunraku puppet theatre. Workshop starts with short theoretical interaction and can be organized as one-day (3-4hours) or three-day workshop.
