The Haunted Sword at the ANU Arts Centre

By Barcham - 23 October 2013 0

Haunted Sword

A cross-dressed version of the Japanese classic drama Kagotsurube will be performed at the ANU Arts Centre this Thursday and Friday by the ANU Za Kabuki troupe.

Founded in 1976, the troupe is made of ANU students of various nationalities and backgrounds, most of whom are studying Japanese language and culture.

In traditional Kabuki only males can perform. But in a modern twist, ANU Za Kabuki performances see females play and dress up as male characters, with men acting as women.

Roughly translated from the Japanese, Kabuki means the art of singing and dancing. Today it is also used to mean ‘bizarre dress and make-up’ and ‘avant-garde performance’.

The ANU Za Kabuki troupe will perform The Haunted Sword at the ANU Arts Centre from 6.30-8.30pm this Thursday and Friday.
