Pobon, the little elephant, sings, dances and takes you to the jungle of fun!
A life-size child elephant puppet called Pobon is coming to Okinawa! Created from an experience at the elephant camp in Thailand, this production premiered at Tokyo in 2017 with extra shows due to high demand. Three performers manipulate the life-size puppet carefully, sometimes daringly, using the techniques of Japanese Bunraku. It's 40 minutes of joy with children. Please enjoy the original songs in the performance as well!
