Hiroshi Hori showed a deep intcrest in making dolls from the earliest days of his childfood.
While he also studied Japanese painting, his big opportunity came in the form of an award he received for a doll he he entered in a competition while still a student.Then he was officially on his way to making a lifelong career out of making dolls.
Besides the display dolls that exemplify tradition and craftsmanship, Hori designs and creates lifesized puppets that he manipulates on stage.
He terms his puppetry performance a "dance of puppets". Indeed, the movements of his puppets are lithe, fluid and graceful-completely different from other conventional puppet shows or classical puppet theater.
As a pupetter, Hori is always prepared to explore new possibilities of his performing art,incorporating elements from various other genres including the noh drama, kabuki, shingeki(literally,"new theater"),and opera, offcring his audiences a wide diversity of theatrical experience.
At the same time, as a creator of puppets, Hori continues to hold numerous exhibitions of his dolls and puppets in major cities across Japan.
He has also been invited to perform and display his work abroad,notably from the Lincoln Center in NewYork, as well as from other cities in Europe, China and Australia.
Hori's consistency in these fields belies his versatility,In 1981,he established his own brand of kimonos,the "Hana Usagi".As a costume designer, he has created wardrobes for famous actors and actresses for both the stage and the motion picture screen.
Hori is also an accredited master of the classical Japanese dance, in direct line under the head of the Azuma school(the late Azuma Tokuho, member of the Japan Art Academy).
Hori dances under the given the name of Azuma Yoho.
In 1998, Hori created 47 dolls for the motion picture,"Ukifune from the Tale of Genji", directed by Masahiro Shinoda.
The film is screened regularly as a permanent main attraction of the Genji Monogatari Museum in Uji, Kyoto.
