Introduction to Kamishibai – Paper Theatre

Join us as comic-book author, graphic novelist, teacher and kamishibai artist, Bernard Caleo shares the origins and modern place of kamishibai or Japanese “paper theatre”. He’ll take us back to 1930s Japan to explore street performance and the intriguing history of this art form. Bernard’s talk will include a number of kamishibai stories, both traditional and recent. Bernard says, ‘I’ve been researching, drawing, writing and performing kamishibai since 2009. It’s the perfect form for me because it combines the two art forms that I love above all others: comic books and theatre!’
