The Japan Foundation , Rakugo Artists Association and the UCLA Center for Japanese Studies present rakugo in English. Rakugo is a centuries-old professional storytelling that depicts ordinary people's lives with a comical twist at the end. The group of performers visiting UCLA at this time includes a veteran rakugo artist SANSHOTEI Charaku, a kamikiri (paper-cutting art) expert HAYASHIYA Imamaru, and ohayashi (musical accompaniment) artist KOKORITA Hiroko. The performance will be followed by an informal reception.
