A Rakugo performance in Japanese

Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 7:00 p.m.
Venue: Alexander Clark Center
Admission: $10.00
Season: 2013-14

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.
