Sunshine in Brighton!
Yesterday was opening night of the Brighton Festival Fringe! It was a great and interesting show for me.
Of the audience, not one person was Japanese (rare for a Rakugo performance).
Also, not one person had ever seen Rakugo before.
So it was a challenge getting the audience into the show, but little by little they relaxed and enjoyed 400-year-old Japanese storytelling!
This is my second year at Brighton and so everything is very smooth and easy in terms of preparation. I am at Sweet Venues (also for Edinburgh) and they are always fantastic – very positive and professional. This time I am looking forward to seeing more of the other shows in the Festival!
If you are in the Brighton area come out and see us!!!
