EWC Gallery Exhibition: "Cosmic Characters: Wood Puppets of Asia"

Puppet theatre presents the entire cosmos through character, color, story, sound, and movement. Distinct traditions are found throughout the Asia Pacific region, many of which have been influenced by shamanism, animism, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

This exhibition focuses on the three-dimensional wood puppets that demonstrate the following techniques: string puppets (marionettes), rod (stick) puppets, and glove (hand) puppets.

More than 10 unique traditions from India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Indonesia, vietnam, China, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan are displayed. To honor our host culture, Hawaiian puppets are featured.

Gallery admission is free. Parking is usually free and ample on Sundays.
