Hello Maru-Chan, for ages 4+, has been created by one of Japan’s foremost theatre companies for young people, Kazenoko.

Maru-Chan is a little girl made of paper, born into an exquisite paper world.  In this beautiful and heart warming story about growing up, Maru-Chan explores the earth, sea and sky around her, meeting many fantastic creatures and objects along the way.

Combining actors, puppets and stunning Japanese design, this captivating performance reveals the many wonders of paper.

Kazenoko is one of Japan’s best loved children’s theatre companies and this is their first visit to the UK.  This production was developed in collaboration with Australian puppet master Peter Wilson – who directed an opening ceremony sequence for Sydney’s 2000 Olympic Games.

Showing as part of Oha! Japan, a perfect introduction to Japan and its rich culture.
