One of Japan’s most popular mukashi banashi folktales comes to life through the playful interpretation of beloved all-male contemporary dance company Condors, led by Ryohei Kondo. Chock-full of high-octane dance, spirited music,kamishibai (picture storytelling), colorful costumes and props and lots of humor, Hanasaka Jiisan, which recognizes the importance of honesty and kindness, promises to delight all ages.
As a perfect prelude, New York-based Japanese puppet artist Maiko Kikuchi offers her witty PINK BUNNY, a parade of the most unlikely of objects assembled in a work to remind us that nothing is impossible.
Tickets: $28/$23 Japan Society members. 
Recommended for ages 5+, accompanied by an adult.
