About: A Hillock
Poetic shadow puppet theatre based on“The Earthgod and the Fox”by Japanese poet and novelist Kenji Miyazawa.
Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933) was poet and author of children’s books during the late Taisho era in Japan. He died in 1933 of pneumonia, almost unknown, but later he has transcended the generations to become one of Japan's most read and best loved authors.
This production was made during New York City closure caused by Corona Virus. Regular rehearsals were not possible and all artists collaborated remotely.
