Basil Twist, Dogugaeshi 
Friday, April 24, 8 PM
Saturday, April 25, 4 PM + 8 PM
Sunday, April 26, 2 PM

Dogugaeshi takes its name from a 17th century Japanese stage technique, in which sliding paper screens depicting animals, interiors or landscapes are whipped away by puppeteers to reveal new backdrops. It has been called a "wood-and-paint version of multimedia." Basil Twist takes the technique as a departure point for an intimate, contemporary work of puppetry influenced both by the the tradition of dogugaeshi and his own encounters with the remaining rural caretakers of this once popular art form.

Dogugaeshi features original shamisen compositions, created by and performed live by master musician Yumiko Tanaka.
