作家:露木 光明(Mitsuaki Tsuyuki)

Puppet show

“Shokichi”

Yubiningyo Shokichi

People ask why only men are in the cast of the puppet theater.
I think that older men bring a seasoned style of talent and are very expressive. I see a lot of older men who seem somewhat morose, so I would like to offer a counterpoint with these examples of charming, joyous theater members. Perhaps in the near future I too will be able to follow suit and equally spirited.
The puppet theater performances definitely tend toward the silly side!
Fans inside and outside Japan will find this comedy quite accessible because of the liberal use of pantomime and other movements.
