    we are honored to present Mr. Tozaburo Yanagiya, Rakugo storyteller!  We would like you all to join us!

    What is Rakugo?

    Rakugo is a traditional verbal art originating from Japan. The Rakugo-ka, or Rakugo storyteller sits down and depicts a comical story only using their voice, minimal gesture, and two props: “Sensu” (a fan) and “Tenugui” (a hand towel). Because of the very limited visual elements, Rakugo is enjoyed using Rakugo-ka's verbal technique and the listeners’ imagination. 

    $8: Member

    Sunday, April 18th 3:00pm-4:00pm

    Please sign up today! The ticket is not refundable, but transferable.

    About Tozaburo Yanagihara:

    Tozaburo “Zabu” Yanagiya III is a world-renowned Rakugo storyteller residing in New York. Since 2014, he has been given the status of “Shin-uchi”, otherwise known as the highest rank in the traditional Japanese Comedy.

    Since 2018, Zabu has been actively performing in the United States, with over 30 shows within schools, community centers and retirement homes. These opportunities affected him to permanently relocate to the US in July of 2019. Unfortunately, with COVID-19 in the way, his ongoing project of performing in all 50 states is currently in hiatus. However, that doesn’t stop his mission to make people all over the world smile through Rakugo. Please join Zabu for an online performance of Rakugo to enlighten your day.
