Presented on the occasion of the exhibition “Painting the Floating World: Ukiyo-e Masterpieces from the Weston Collection”, Shank’s Mare is a collaborative puppet performance by American puppet artist Tom Lee and Japanese traditional puppeteer Koryu Nishikawa V.

This beautifully detailed production combines Japanese traditional puppetry, live video projection of miniature sets, and a haunting score on hammered dulcimer and Japanese shamisen and flute to tell the story of two wandering travelers whose paths intersect in time and space.

This performance will also take place on the following dates:

Friday, January 18, 6:30–8:30
Saturday, January 19, 11:00–1:00
