Created by Tom Lee and Japanese Master Puppeteer Koryu Nishikawa V, Shank’s Mare is the story of two wandering travelers whose paths intersect in time and space. Using traditional kuruma ningyo puppetry, video projection, and live music, the piece explores themes of life and death and how tradition is passed on. After a sold-out run in New York and tour to Japan, Asia Society Texas Center welcomes this unique collaboration which won the 2016 Arlyn Award for Outstanding Design in Puppet Theatre. TimeOut NY gave the show five stars and wrote, “You simply won't see better puppetry anywhere nor a tighter braiding of methods old and new nor artists working so confidently at the peak of their craft.”
