Experience Traditional Japanese Performing Art Join TWN’s Kabuki Program for Beginners at National Theatre

The Tomon Women’s Network (TWN) every year provides foreign students studying at Waseda University with an opportunity to participate in the “Kabuki Performance for Beginners” program, which is organized by the National Theatre. This program is designed to introduce young people to Kabuki, a traditional Japanese performing art. The program consists of two parts: Part I, “How to Appreciate Kabuki,” and Part II, “Experiencing a live Kabuki performance”. TWN has been organizing this event for foreign students to provide an opportunity to get to know Kabuki at a reasonable price (JPY 1000 fee)

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we could not organise this event for students since 2020, following Waseda’s anti-pandemic protocol.  However, as pandemic regulations have been relaxed this year, we are thrilled to invite students again to this official TWN event. Since TWN members will also attend this event, you may have a chance to meet Waseda alumni at the theatre.

Please join us in this event to gain some experience in Kabuki.
