**This program is part of the Traditional Arts in Modern Japan series**
Rakugo is the 400 year old tradition of comedic storytelling in Japan. A minimalistic performance, Rakugo features a lone storyteller dressed in a kimono, kneeling on a zabuton (cushion), while using only a fan and a hand towel for props. They entertain the audience with a comical monologue followed by a traditional story.
We are honored to present Tozaburo Yanagiya, a master Rakugo storyteller with the drive to spread the word of Rakugo across America! Tozaburo has been performing all over Japan since 1999 and the United States since 2018. Don't miss your chance to experience a new type of comedic performance and learn about Japanese culture all in one night.
One story will be in Japanese, the rest will be in English.
