The Japan Society is delighted to welcome three outstanding exponents of Japanese vaudeville tradition for an evening of popular culture.

The evening will include:
Music by Shunputei Shomatsu and Yumiko on drums and shamisen
Paper cutting by Hayashiya Imamaru
Rakugo performed by Sanshotei Charaku

In Hayashiya Imamaru’s hands, a pair of scissors can produce detailed cut-out images with extraordinary speed and dexterity. He travels the world, impressing people with his kamikiri prowess, including in his show audience requests.

A master of the rakugo comic narrative,Sanshotei Charaku has nearly 50 years’ experience and a repertory of over 100 tales. He describes the story telling process as a developing relationship between audience and narrator, in which the choice of content emerges from their meeting.
