Daruma-mori and Eriko, Kobe

_0017_jpn-011-dalmamori_erikoThis duo delivers an insanely creative theatrical puppet company experience. “Daruma-mori” has many hats: stage writer, picture book author, creator of musical instruments, artist and performer. Eriko says that, well, both her hobby and her work is Daruma-mori (!) They perform everywhere that kids gather, from festivals to libraries. They have a regular “Daruma-mori and Eriko’s Democratic Flowers” radio program and are serial picture-book award winners, including repeated mentions at the Crayon House Picture Book Grand Prize.
