Kamishibai Stories for Kids – A Show for all Ages

Kamishibai or ‘paper theatre’ is a Japanese street storytelling art using picture cards framed in a wooden box or stage. Popular in the 1930s, the storytellers mounted their stages onto bicycles and delivered stories to children. With the advent of television, kamishibai became less popular and the storytellers applied their talents to manga and animation. Now, kamishibai is enjoying a revival around the world.

At the Williamstown Literary Festival kamishibai storytellers are gathering for the first time in Australia! Kamishibai for Kids brings talented storytellers together to share stories from their beautiful home-made stages. Anna, Dani,Tetsuta and Jackie have songs and rhymes and will introduce a little mischief and mayhem. Participatory in nature, kamishibai engages the hearts and minds of all. Come and be entertained and inspired by this gentle and intimate way of sharing stories.

Jackie Kerin, Dani Bücheler-Scott, Anna Manuel, Tetsuta Watanabe, Sarah Depasquale.

Adults $7.50| Children $5| Children Under 3 Free
