Happy New Year!

Last year was a big year for us. We performed our shadow shows in Brazil and China, and also created a new show "GREEN MAN", which was premiered in last October in Tokyo.

We are also grateful to receive Critic's Choice Award in Orlando Fringe festival 2019 and Osaka 21 Century Award in Osaka Fringe festival 2019.

​This year, we will keep making new arts and perform in different countries. Please stay tuned!


Analogue Live Cinema

We have developed a unique style of cinematic shadow puppetry performed on a large screen, with live music and voices. Using film and animation techniques, we manipulate hundreds of handmade puppets in front of the audience to create a live "analogue movie".

Our shows are unlike any other form of theatre. We will bring a new form of live stage art to you.

Our Shows

Mochinosha has created over a dozen shows for both adults and children.

We have performed in over 35 cities in 8 countries including London, Tokyo, Beijing and Sao Paulo Brazil. We have received many 5 star reviews and multiple theatre awards across the world.

Upcoming Shows

Here is the list of our upcoming shows which are open to public.

We try to bring our shows wherever we are asked to perform. We love traveling and meeting new people from different cultures and backgrounds around the world!


Discover our unique style of puppetry works by taking a look at our photos and trailers. We will be adding original Shadow art to the gallery soon!
