Japanese puppet theatre

bunraku at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Japanese traditional puppet theater, in which nearly life-size dolls act out a chanted dramatic narrative, called joruri, to the accompaniment of a small shamisen. Puppet theater reached its height in the 18th cent. with the plays of Chikamatsu Monzaemon, and declined later because of a lack of excellent joruri writers.
