Japan Society presents Dogugaeshi, a collaboration between puppeteer Basil Twist (Symphonie Fantastique) and Japanese composer/musician Yumiko Tanaka. The following description is from the show's press release: "A ferocious tiger appears amidst a bamboo thicket. The urban cityscape of Tokyo dissolves in the whirlpool of ritual and history. Basil Twist unfolds an intimate, abstract journey of images of ancient and modern Japan in this multidisciplinary theater work. A beguiling snow-white fox invites the audience into a transformational world of illusions, in which nearly 100 handcrafted painted screens open, glide, twist and turn to reveal one more powerful and intricate than the next. Inspired by rarified traditional Japanese dogugaeshi stage mechanism and Twist's own encounters with the remaining rural caretakers of this once popular art form."
