Princeton: Arts Society hosts Kamishibai performance

September 22, 2013

The public is invited to a Kamishibai performance by Shunsuke Yamaguchi Sept. 22, at 2 p.m., in the Princeton Arts Society Room (1st Floor) of the Princeton Center Building, 18 Boylston Ave., Princeton. Kamishibai (kami = paper, shibai = theater) is a traditional Japanese form of storytelling using drawings. Shunsuke has recreated a wooden theater with his own original drawings which include cut outs and moving parts. He will perform two stories which are modern adaptations of traditional Japanese folk tales, and also present a brief history of kamishibai, and answer any questions. The event is free and open to the public and is handicap accessible. The show is targeted for children ages pre-school through K-5; however, Shunsuke's performance, art, and storytelling are entertaining for all ages, including adults. For more information, visit http://shunsukeyamaguchi.com or http://princetonartssociety.blogspot.com. The event is sponsored by the Princeton Arts Society and funded by the Princeton Cultural Council, a local agency funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
