7 p.m. Location: Alexander Clark Center
This performance is by Rakugo master Kokontei Kikushin
This performance is in Japanese.
Rakugo is a comic storytelling art that has entertained the Japanese for over 400 years. A lone storyteller, wearing a kimono and seated on the stage, performs a comical story by assuming the roles of many characters. He relies entirely on voice, gesture, expression, and two small props - an uchiwa (fan) and tenugui (hand towel) - plus the audiences' imagination. Come out to laugh and experience Japanese culture in a rare Dallas showing.
This event is presented by the Dallas Green-kai, UT Dallas Asia Center, and Japan America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth.
Tickets may be purchased using cash or check at the door.
