Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC) | 1840 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA
Come out for the famous Kabuki dance drama, “The Bridegroom’s Journey” (part of “The 47 Ronin,” one of the most popular samurai revenge tales of all time). No need to have studied prior parts; this drama is a self-contained story. This bitter-sweet dance drama, at turns moving and comical, is one of the most beautiful and colorful in the Kabuki repertoire.
The movie is in Japanese with English subtitles. The class is part of The 47 Ronin Project, a year-long exploration on film of the original Kabuki theatre version of the popular samurai revenge tale. Sponsored by JETAANC Kabuki Club and JCCCNC.
