Theatre – Tales From Old Japan




  • Theatre – Tales From Old Japan


A Thousand Cranes, in association with Artsdepot, the former of which brought us Little Mochi Man last year, are back with another family-friendly theatre show for this year’s festival.

What’s it about?

“Mountains are just like people – they have secrets, mysteries and stories to tell”

Come and hear enchanting, bewitching and hair-raising stories of magnificent Mount Iwate who blew hot and cold, the humble woodcutter and his beautiful but strange bride and the snorting, burping Ogre of Rashomon Gate.

These three delightful traditional Japanese tales are brought to life through inventive storytelling, puppetry and music.

Performed by Kumiko Mendl

Directed by Vicky Ireland

A charming theatrical experience for younger audiences and their families – 3yrs+
