The Mini Fair is one of our New Year special events. We invited Shunsuke Igarashi and he sold some of his products including ones he made on request at the event.
There was an elderly man who wanted to win so bad that another elderly man bought him 5 tickets in one go. There was also an elementary school boy who was so happy because, he never missed the mark! Many different kinds of emotions were displayed at the addictive shooting game!
This time there was a Shishimai performer called “Waki”, who gave a workshop for families and had them perform on the stage! They performed their role earnestly and cutely.
Even the short story about a chimpanzee before the Rakugo got many laughs. Once he had the audiences’ attention , he moved onto “Heron Catching”. Yumekichi was able to get a roar of laughter even just by pretending to be drunk and his sparrow role play.
Even if you watch the same Daikagura performed by different people it’s still just as powerful and really worth seeing! The audience had their eyes nailed to the breathtaking performance.
Even while being so intensely focused upon, Kikusen and Kasen’s smiles never let up.
This performance was definitely one of Yumekichi’s best. The children roared with laughter when he portrayed the habits of the four characters in the story. There were many messages of support for Yumekichi in the questionnaire.
