Course Description

 There are many performing arts that have been enjoyed in Japan. Kabuki and Bunraku, which were established in the early modern period, are representative of these.
 Kabuki originated as a Kabuki dance performed by young girls that became popular about 400 years ago, and has since been transformed in various ways to suit the times. Bunraku, a narrative art form, was transformed into a stage art form about 400 years ago when it was combined with puppeteering.
