Shinoharu Tatekawa, the third disciple of Shinosuke Tatekawa, who is one of the up-and-coming Rakugo performers in Japan will be coming back to Singapore to stage his traditional Japanese comic storytelling performance - all English show. For the very first time, Shinoharu will be featuring a Singaporean storyteller, Kamini Ramachandran, at his one-day performance on June 19.


A form of traditional Japanese entertainment, Rakugo is best described as stand-up comedy in a sit-down story-telling style, established in the late 18th century. As a minimalistic performance art, a lone storyteller usually wears a kimono (Japanese traditional clothing), uses a sensu (paper fan) and a tenugui (tiny handkerchief), and entertains the audience by playing several characters on a koza (stage).


Do not miss this rare opportunity of catching renowned storytellers from Japan and Singapore performing together on the same stage.
