A beautiful and moving story weaving a traditional Japanese folktale about a crane (the Tsuru) with the story of a young mouse and her grandfather as they struggle against an oppressive overlord, the goblin Tengu. This magical performance integrates origami and shadow puppetry as it celebrates artistic creativity, ingenuity and the power of love. This show premiered in 2013 and has since toured to Saskatoon’s Persephone Theatre and Toronto’s Young People’s Theatre, receiving critical acclaim and both Sterling and Dora Award nominations.
