Free Lecture: Kabuki – Japan’s Outrageous Dramatic Tradition

The Cincinnati Asian Art Society is pleased to announce

Kabuki - Japan´s Outrageous Dramatic Tradition
An Illustrated Presentation by Helen Rindsberg

Kabuki began as a riverside variety show in the early 1600s and grew into THE pop
culture phenomenon of the 1800s.

Its outrageous actors became the rock stars of Edo Era Japan complete with rabid fan
clubs. Their fame was spread near and far by woodblock prints of exciting bold
design that Ms. Rindsberg will use to illustrate her talk.
