English Rakugo Performance & Special Talk Show by Ms. Kimie Oshima
On 9th November 2014, ICT had a workshop of English Rakugo, by welcoming an English Rakugo performer, Ms. Kimie Oshima, who has performed over twenty different countries to provide laughter and humor all over the world!
The fabulous performance started from 7 p.m. She showed us several Rakugo stories, including “Time Noodles” (時うどん), “A man in A Hurry”(いらち車), “Skipper” (愛犬スキッパー) and much more! There were about 20 people attended, and seemed to have special night with lots of unique Rakugo jokes.
Not only the contents of Rakugo, the pantomimes were also excellent so that we enjoyed the performance as if we were also acting together with her at the stage!
In addition to this, Ms. Oshima performed Rakugo with simple English, therefore, “English Rakugo” sounds difficult for people those who are learning English apparently, however, we were easily invited to the world of Rakugo story!
Special Thanks to Ms. Kimie Oshima for performing a wonderful English Rakugo show, and also big thank-you to all participants who laughed together! Don’t miss the next chance for the members who couldn’t join last night!
