Kabuki Envelopes - Set of 20

Product Description

These envelopes are cute! On the back one guy is  taking a selfie!

Kabuki is a traditional Japanese drama with singing and dancing performed in a highly stylized manner. It combines music, dance, mime, and spectacular staging and costuming. It has been a popular form of entertainment in Japan for almost four centuries. The word Kabuki is written with three characters: ka 歌, signifying “song”; bu 舞, “dance”; and ki 伎, “skill.”

What is interesting is while today kabuki actors are men, kabuki was in fact, first performed by women. In 1603 a woman named Izumo No Okuni, began performing a new style of dance drama. The female actors played both men and women and this new drama style was immediately popular. At the time, Kabuki was also called "遊女歌舞妓" (prostitute-singing and dancing performer) because often, the actors were often prostitutes.Women’s kabuki was banned in 1629 for being too erotic. Young boys then performed instead, but since they too were eligible for prostitution, the shogun government soon banned them as well. Kabuki switched to adult male actors, in the mid-1600s. Male actors played both female and male characters. The theatre remained popular, and remained a focus of urban lifestyle until modern times.



The envelopes measure about 9 x 20.5 cm (3.5 x 8 inches). There are 20 in the pack.
