Be transported to an inventive and beautifully crafted cityscape as you follow the heartfelt journey of one dog who has touched the hearts of people everywhere. Based on a true story from Japan, Hachikō is a theatrical celebration of the remarkable joy and companionship that an animal can bring to our lives.
The story explores themes such as loyalty, resilience, and change, and teaches students that change is normal and can be a valuable part of life.
The puppetry is inspiring and inventive – it will become a springboard for classroom discussion and activity. Worlds of cardboard, paper and play transport us into cardboard cities, paper people and tell the stories of the inspiration one dog gave to many people all over the world.
