Oha! Japan — Children’s theatre at The Unicorn

From the 11th March until the 6th April There are two Japanese plays for children at the Unicorn Theatre London. Both these plays are being seen for the first time in the UK

The plays are
Hello Maru-chan UK Premiere
for a younger audience.
From the stills on their site this looks an exciting design. The puppets used seem to have been made in collaboration with the director of the opening ceremony of Sydney’s 2000 Olympic Games, Peter Wilson.

The Twin Stars World Premiere
For older children.
This is from a story by Kenji Miyazawa. (Not the Tanabata story as the title would suggest) It sounds as if it’s worth a look.

On the 22 March (Easter Saturday) there is a special one day event where Southwark residents can see these plays for free and everyone else can participate in workshops and see The Dojo Drummers.
