Sponsored by the University of Chicago Committee on Japanese Studies
May 11-12, 2012
In April 2011, the University of Chicago community welcomes the Minwa-za Company of Tokyo for a series of events celebrating the uniquely Japanese magic lantern tradition of utsushi-e. This week will feature free workshops, lecture-demonstrations, and performances that will recreate utsushi-e in the original theatrical manner, using reproductions of lanterns and slides of the Edo era.
