Japanese Cultural Experiences

Private Kabuki Workshop

To see "Kabuki", Japanese traditional performance, you would normally need to go to a big theater and see actors from a certain distance, in many cases small. In this program, an actual Kabuki actor comes to a private venue we arrange, and lectures you about Kabuki followed by a private show.
First part of this program begins by the short lecture about Kabuki. Questions are very welcome. Then the actor will do elaborate make-up which is very unique to Japanese Kabuki. You usually cannot see this make-up process but in this program you can see up close how they do their make-up. If you are interested, you are able to do the same make-up on your face.
After approx. 1 hour workshop, cocktails/tea break is held and during this time, Kabuki actor dresses up and prepares for performance. After the 30 min break, 10-15 min Kabuki show begins. If the workshop is in lunch/dinner time, it is possible to arrange meal and after the main dish are served, Kabuki show begins to evoke the mood. Single actor lectures you and show special performance only for your group, therefore being a very exclusive program for your VIPs.
