Tiger and the Dried Persimmon by Thistle Theatre
A young tiger, thinking he is the fiercest in all Korea, ventures down a mountainside in search of food. He overhears a mother trying to stop her daughter from crying with a piece of kotgum (dried persimmon). The silly tiger thinks the kotgum must be a very frightening creature if it can instantly stop a child from crying. Afraid that the kotgum will find him, the Tiger hides in the barn where a thief is also hiding!

This adaptation of a Korean folktale is performed with Bunraku, rod and shadow puppets. Thistle Theatre is the only performing arts organization in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in Bunraku, an ancient Japanese style of puppetry. The puppeteers are dressed head-to-toe in black to suggest invisibility.
