KabukiMA Narukami Thunder God



Narukami Thunder God is a Japanese tale of deception, seduction and betrayal. This 17th-century classic of the kabuki theatre repertoire recounts a princess' quest to free the dragon god of rain from the clutches of a deranged monk. Kabuki is a traditional genre of Japanese theatre which combines ka (song), bu (dance) and ki (acting) to simultaneously hilarious and thrilling effect. KabukiMA is bringing kabuki to Edinburgh with their new English rendition of Narukami, performed in traditional costume and make-up. Enjoy the splendour and richness of Japanese theatre this summer!
