THE TRUE TALE OF PRINCESS KAGUYA is a modern-adaptation of the Japanese folktale Kaguyahime written with a feminist twist from a genderqueer perspective. It explores the life of a princess called Kaguya, who was found inside a bamboo stalk as a baby. Deviating from the original in which a beautiful heroine becomes an object of male gaze, Kaguya is a tomboy who revolts against traditions, rejecting all suitors and reaching for an identity all her own. Featuring puppetry/shadow-puppetry, this interstellar fable questions how a Princess can break free of the permeating reach of patriarchy to become a truly independent individual.
