Experiencing Rakugo in English [2月 14,2017 ]

Mr. Shoto, a rakugo (comic story) professional storyteller, was invited to have our students get a firsthand glimpse of rakugo in English on January 24, 2017 at the CJLC Hall.

He explained how to use a paper fan and small cloth, which are used as props, how to utilize your gaze and move your face during the dialogue, and most of all the importance of using your “imagination.” He told short stories in English and performed them using several other languages as well. The students were able to see the Japanese owarai (comedy) culture with their very eyes as well as actually experience it live.
