EWC Presents Puppets of Asia Exhibition

Date/Time

Jan 20, 2019 to May 5, 2019
02:00 PM until 04:00 PM

Description

Puppets of Asia exhibition presents the myths and legends of cultures from the Asia Pacific region, many of which display influences of shamanism, animism, Hinduism and Buddhism.

 

This exhibition focuses on a variety of three-dimensional wood puppets: string puppets (marionettes), rod (stick) puppets, and glove (hand) puppets.

 

To honor the host culture, the performance will feature Hawaiian puppets. These performances are a place of intersection—a bridge between the past, present, and future—where the divine and human worlds meet and ancient stories are made relevant for the contemporary experience.

 

Gallery admission is free. Hours: Open weekdays 8 a.m.–5 p.m. and Sundays noon to 4 p.m. Closed Saturdays, and Jan. 21, Feb. 18, Apr. 21.

 

Parking on the UH Mānoa campus is normally free and ample on Sundays. Free school & group tours available.
