Magic Teakettle

Sunday, March 10, 2019, 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Thistle Theatre, a puppet theatre for families, presents: Magic Teakettle In a Japanese temple, a teakettle is placed over the fire for the tea ceremony. Suddenly, it sprouts a tail, a head and the four legs of a Tanuki (a raccoon-like animal found in Japan). Fearing the strange creature with the body of a teakettle, the Priest returns it to the peddler woman who sold it to him. She gives the Tanuki a home and food and grateful for her kindness, the Tanuki reveals he is Bumbuku Chagama, a teakettle of good luck. Together they start a theatre and the Magic Teakettle of Good Luck performs acrobatic tricks. Thistle Theatre specializes in the Bunraku-style of puppetry, an ancient Japanese art form. Although the style has been modified for modern audiences and performers, the basic idea remains the same: puppeteers dressed entirely in black, to symbolize their invisibility, operate the puppets.
