Topic: Kabuki Actors' Children | CANCELLED: Kabuki Free Theater Class | San Mateo
The San Mateo Kabuki Club is holding a class focusing on Kataoka Sennosuke, son of Kataoka Takataro and grandson of Kataoka Nizaemon, at 1:30 pm on Sunday, May 5, 2013. The topic of the class is “How Kabuki Actors’ Children are Growing Up in Their Field.”
The class will include two videos:
1. Documentary: Kataoka Sennosuke’s first time on the stage with his father Kataoka Takataro and his grandfather Kataoka Nizaemon in November 2004 at Kabukiza. He was 4-year-old. He played the “young man” role in “The Festival.”
2. “Ren jishi” (lion dance). In June 2010, Sennnosuke played “a child-shishi” role with Nizaemon. Sennosuke was 11 years old.
The videos will be shown in Japanese, with an adequate introduction and synopsis provided in English.
