A special exhibition from Nov 19th, at the Kabukiza Gallery
The special exhibition, “Welcome to the Kabukiza Theatre” will be held at the Kabukiza Gallery.
From November 19th (Sun), a special exhibition will be held at the Kabukiza Gallery located on the 5th floor of the Kabukiza Tower.
Kabuki is one of Japan’s representative traditional arts, and over its 400 year history, it has fostered a performance culture that is unparalleled in the world. The Kabukiza Theatre, located near Ginza and Tsukiji, is a dedicated theatre for kabuki and attracts customers from across the globe throughout the year.
With “Welcome to the Kabukiza Theatre”, you can learn more about kabuki through 3 special exhibitions; “1. Deepening Your Understanding of Kabuki”, “2. Kabuki Experiencing Area” and “3. Special Film Presentation “The Making of Umeōmaru” – Theatre Screening”.
After finding out about kabuki through the panel display in the first exhibition, “1. Deepening Your Understanding of Kabuki”, you can touch and experience the props actually used in kabuki in the second exhibition, “2. Kabuki Experiencing Area”. The third exhibition, “Special Film Presentation “The Making of Umeōmaru””, focuses on ‘Umeōmaru’, a character from the Kabuki play ‘Kurumabiki’. It is a documentary-style film that closely follows the Kabuki actor as he prepares to take to the stage. Using Mixed Reality technology, explanations of the film and subtitles are accessible through the MR headsets.
