The Tall Keyaki Tree is a shadow puppet fantasy with live music, inspired by the novel Five-Storied Pagoda written by Koda Rohan (1867–1947). A peculiar carpenter undertakes the profound task of building a five-storied pagoda using the wood from the Keyaki (Zelkova) tree. Having grown up with the tree, the carpenter’s strong spiritual bond with the Keyaki powers the creation of an exceptional pagoda. This production is funded by the Jim Henson Foundation in 2021.
