“The First Laugh” of the year will bring you luck!
Let’s laugh together with superstar and storyteller,
Katsura Sunshine, currently in his 5th month on Broadway!
The Power of Art - Rakugo will bring you peace and joy!
Rakugo is a traditional form of Japanese performance started in the 18th century. It is a unique style of monologue, telling comedic stories, tales, and anecdotes. Katsura Sunshine plays several characters at once and differentiates through tone of voice and gestures.
Katsura Sunshine is the first non-Japanese practitioner of Kamigata (Osaka) style Rakugo and only the second non-Japanese to be trained in Japan. Following his early successes in theatre in his native Canada, he moved to Japan and completed a full Kamigata apprenticeship under master and TV presenter Katsura Bunshi VI, who awarded Katsura Sunshine his stage name as per Rakugo tradition. Katsura Sunshine has been performing Rakugo worldwide ever since, in English and in Japanese, and across four continents.
