A Sparrow's Tale

Mr Umehara is probably Adelaide's one and only Kamishibai artist in action as he presents a heart warming story inspired by the great dream of a humble man.



About this Event

Kamishibai ("paper theatre") is a time-honoured Japanese theatrical art that gave rise to the modern pop culture phenomena of manga and anime. Originally a form of children's street entertainment threatened with extinction by the 20th century onslaught of TV and computer games, it is undergoing a revival in its homeland. Right here in Adelaide a folklore expert has made it his mission to develop kamishibai for cross-cultural audiences of all ages.
