Puppeteer Basil Twist's Dougugaeshi

Basil TwistAn artist of wild imagination and singular poetic vision, puppeteer Basil Twist creates absorbing works that connect classic stories with profound music and mesmerizing visuals. His meditative Dogugaeshi explores an ancient Japanese art, where unseen puppeteers deftly manipulate hand-painted screens to reveal marvelous characters and landscapes, accompanied by Yumiko Tanaka on shamisen. Dogugaeshi was commissioned by the Japan Society in New York and won a Bessie Award in 2005. Due to its intricate set, it is rarely performed. Performance times vary.
