LA MAMA KIDS: SHADOW PUPPET DEMONSTRATION AND SHOW
Led by Watoku Ueno
Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 4pm
Watoku Ueno gives a puppet shadow demonstration followed by an excerpt from Tall Keyaki Tree, a shadow puppet piece which combines music, shadow puppets, projections, and dance, “it feels like a theatre version of an art house silent film…”
Watoku Ueno was born in Japan and graduated from the Sokei Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied various kinds of painting techniques. Given his interest in theatre and Modern Art, it was quite natural that he eventually landed in New York. Watoku is a designer, director and puppet maker, creating enchanting shadow puppet shows.
