Turning Japanese

It’s Research Investigation time for my TA students and two of them are getting excited about Japanese theatre. So, Tim and Clarissa, three fantastic documentaries to get you going.

And a little added extra.  This is the Ningyo Johruri Bunraku Puppet Theatre in Osaka which I visited 6 years ago.  I went on the opening day of the season, thanks to a very helpful concierge at my hotel. I was fortunate enough to see the greatest living japanese master jōruri – a very wizened old man who was just astonishing.
