Urashima and the Turtle

The Storytelling
A miniature underwater world is created with origami figures, painted paper and pop up structures to tell the legend of the fisherman’s adventures at the sea king’s palace. Claire sings traditional Japanese children’s songs throughout the story, creating an atmospheric background for the visuals.

After the storytelling, students are led through a step-by-step process to create their own paper characters, male and female, using beautiful washi paper and especially cut pieces prepared in advance.
