A brief history of Kabuki

Kabuki is a style of Japanese theatre dating back four centuries with a reputation for being quite avant-garde and off-beat.

It is a highly stylised combination of song, dance, music and acting with elaborate costumes and makeup.

Originally performed by women, the sensuous characters were thought too provocative so were replaced by men. As it stands today, men play most characters in kabuki, including female characters.

Without question, it is the most popular of Japan’s traditional theatre styles.
