Japanese Comedy Edo Night. Sake tasting + food (Fundraising event)
Presented by MSTERIO, Inc
On March 20, we're hosting a very fun Japanese Edo night. It will all be in English of course. We will have a traditional Rakugo comedy performance as well as a Japanese light Hors d'oeuvre including Sake from "Sake Suki", and the generous food sponsors from "Cha-an", "Sobaya".
Rakugo is a traditional form of verbal comedy dating back to the Japanese Edo Period (1603-1868). Wearing kimono, performers sit on stage to unravel stories based on puns and wordplay, told through dialogues with several characters. They act out different scenes by changing the tone and pitch of their voice, turning their head to help the audience identify the speaker, using only sensu fans and tenugui handkerchiefs as props.
