Event Details

Interested in Japanese Kabuki theatre? Join us for a special class focusing on the art and artistry of Nakamura Shikan VII, one of the greatest Kabuki performers of our time. Designated a "Living National Treasure," Shikan was beloved the world over for his sensitive portrayals of some of Kabuki's most difficult roles. Join us as we watch some of his finest dance performances on video and pay tribute to this Kabuki legend! 

In Japanese with English translation. Class is free and open to the public. All ages welcome!

If you are curious about why Kabuki's unique combination of drama, music, dance, and spectacle continues to entertain millions every year, "here's your chance to see one of the finest Kabuki films ever made, free, amongst fans and experts who will gladly fill you in on all the social and historical aspects of the performance" (Flavorpill "Editor's Pick").
