Japanese Comedy With Katsura Sunshine
Rakugo is a 400-year-old form of Japanese comedy in which classical or modern anecdotes are presented to the audience in dialog form. Celebrated on New York’s off-Broadway, Katsura Sunshine is particularly fond of telling about the culture clash between Japan and the USA. On the occasion of our 20th anniversary, he will give a taste of his skills – live from Tokyo! Equipped with a fan and a handkerchief, the native Canadian brings his stories to life and makes fun of many a Japanese quirk!
