“Two different characters are approaching the ends of their lives. One is a thief and murderer who dies and goes to hell where he has a final opportunity to attain salvation. The other is a medieval astronomer on a quest to witness a rare cosmic event before he dies. I’ve always thought of it as a kind of puppet road movie.” – Tom Lee
A not-to-be-missed opportunity to preview exciting new theater just weeks before its New York premiere in November 2015.
Having won critical acclaim for his work on Broadway (War Horse), the Metropolitan Opera (Madama Butterfly), and the Edinburgh Festival (Wind Up Bird Chronicle), renowned puppeteer Tom Lee joins forces with Japanese Master Koryu Nishikawa V to create Shank’s Mare – a moving and magical exploration of life, death, and the power of tradition as told through the use of Kuruma Ningyo puppetry, video projection and live music.
