Kamishibai, Japanese Paper Theater (Video)

Hazuki Kataoka shares the folktale Momotaro the Peach Boy at the American Library Association 2010 Annual Conference using the "Japanese kamishibai format." "Kami" means "paper," and "shibai" means "theater."


(Yes, I took this video.)

Notes for creating your own kamishibai taken from Kamishibai Story Theater: The Art of Picture Telling by Dianne de las Casas:
  • first card’s text goes on back of last card
  • second card’s text goes on back of first card
  • use 11x15 or 14x22 paper
