Event Details

Join us as we study on film the Kabuki drama, "Jirozaemon and the Courtesan Yatsuhashi" (Kagotsurube), featuring an all-star cast in one the most sensational plays of late Kabuki.

Under the blooming cherry trees of the pleasure quarter, the humble, pockmarked merchant Jirozaemon falls helplessly in love with Yatsuhashi, the most popular courtesan in Edo. Can he redeem her and give her a life of happiness or will the cruel winds of fate blow them in another direction? (synopsis)

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").
