DESCRIPTION

Kabuki Close-Up: Makeup and Acting Demonstration

Zenshinza Theater Company

Friday, November 12, 3:30 p.m.

Museum Theater

In conjunction with the Flowers of the Four Seasons exhibition, members of the famed Zenshinza Theater Company will demonstrate and describe techniques of Kabuki makeup and acting. A cherished artistic institution in its homeland, Zenshinza performs before more than 250,000 people annually in a wide range of lavish and colorful productions, from traditional Kabuki to period dramas and historical plays about Japanese Buddhism.

One of Japan’s oldest theater troupes, the Zenshinza Theater Company will appear at Cal Performances in two different programs, on November 13 at 8 p.m. and November 14 at 3 p.m. The museum’s presentation offers a special opportunity for a behind-the-scenes encounter with these extraordinary artists as well as insights into their art.
