Why See The Puppet Train?

A Buddhism inspired one-woman improvisational musical takes the entire audience on the journey of life, exploration, and discoveries with a puppet named Maria taking a journey on a train. She does not know why she's there, where she is going or what she will find at each stop that lies ahead of her.

What new discoveries will Maria find as she goes along her journey? Her candid thoughts on life, love and the dreams we each hold as individuals and share with those around us, allows the audience to reflect calmly and deeply much in the vein of the Buddhist ideal that serves as the performance's inspiration.

NY-based artist, choreographer, and performer Yuriko Miyake hails from Hiroshima, Japan. Yuriko recently performed in the stage versions of the legendary Hayao Miyazaki film, Princess Mononoke in London and Tokyo. The Puppet Train has been created and performed since 2010 in both Japan and the US. Yuriko has a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts and Dance.
