RAKUGO with Diane Kichijitsu: The most famous English Rakugo Performer from Osaka is in Singapore!

Description

(日本語は英語の後です。)

What is RAKUGO?

This traditional Japanese art of comedy storytelling has been enchanting audiences for over 400 years. The kimono-clad performer recounts a tale whilst kneeling on a cushion, using voice inflections, gestures and facial expressions to portray all the characters and using only a fan & handkerchief as props to creatively represent a variety of objects. The storyteller takes the listener on a magical journey, giving insights into Japanese customs, culture, and traditional lifestyles in a light-hearted, humorous way.

The only limitation is the listener’s imagination.

About Diane Kichijitsu

Diane Kichijitsu hails from Liverpool, England and is a popular stage performer of Rakugo, the Japanese traditional art of comic storytelling. She is also highly sought after for her prodigious skills as a balloon artist, performing in events and giving workshops all over the world.

Her deep knowledge of Japanese culture, extensive travel experiences as a globe-trotting backpacker, keen observations of cultural differences and humourous anecdotes of her surprising encounters in Japan form the basis of her hilarious Rakugo stories, as well as the numerous talks she delivers at schools, cultural exchange events and international study classes. She is a frequent guest on Japanese radio and television, and an occasional contributor to local and international newspapers and magazines. Diane also holds teaching licences in ikebana - Japanese flower arrangement and sado - tea ceremony, as well as being a graduate in kitsuke, the art of dressing in kimono.

Watching Diane mesmerize an audience of children, entertain a roomful of dignitaries or elicit gales of laughter from the residents of a Japanese care home, armed with nothing more than a fan and a handkerchief for props and her mile-a-minute delivery in Osaka dialect, it is hard to imagine that she was a painfully shy child. Or that, having worked in London as a graphic designer, she would decide to set off on a journey that has taken her through more than forty countries.
