Japan’s answer to stand-up comedy, Rakugo is a 400-year-old tradition of comic storytelling. As popular today as it ever was, Rakugo (literally “falling word”) has, until recently, had little exposure in North America, but that is all about to change. Canadian Katsura Sunshine, the only foreign storyteller among almost 700 practicing professionals today, aims to shine the spotlight on this ancient art form with his English translations of Rakugo’s classic stories.
Katsura Sunshine comes to Kentucky for the first time to perform this traditional (and very funny!) Japanese storytelling art!
