The Legend of Urashima Taro is adapted from MYTHOLOGICAL JAPAN: The Symbolisms of Mythology in Relation to Japanese Art (1902). The entire performance is made with 2D puppets and cutouts, which I think create very effective and clean visual imagery. I really enjoyed the choreography of the storytelling as well. I liked the fact that they incorporated the hands controlling the puppets/props into the performance.
