Kabuki: the art of traditional Japanese theater

Kabuki is a Japanese theatrical art form rich in history, characters and traditions. From its humble origins as an Okuni dance in the early 17th century, kabuki has become a popular and respected entertainment in Japan. Kabuki characters, such as onnagata, aragoto, and wagoto, are icons of Japanese culture and are valued for their sophistication, elegance, and dramatic exaggeration. Kabuki continues to evolve and adapt to modern times, while retaining its roots in Japanese tradition and history.
