Cinema Kabuki “Renjishi” will be screened at Kyoto with English subtitles


"Renjishi" Story

The Kabuki Lion Dance usually features a father/son duo as two powerful lions who explore the challenging father/son relationship.
The Triple Lion Dance is extraordinary not only because it stars the legendary Kanzaburō, but also his talented sons Kankurō and Shichinosuke who shine as the younger lions, showcasing three of Japan’s most revered mythical beasts.
Look for unusual hand-held shishi masks which evolve into majestic full mane costumes.
The father lion is one of the most sought-after roles for Kabuki dancers.
