#293 Kabuki

Kabuki is traditional Japanese dance drama.

It is a theater performance.

The outfits, makeup and gestures are overblown.

And the Japanese is old-style and pretty difficult even for native speakers to understand.

Also, only men can perform kabuki so all of the parts will be played by male actors.

Kenji Darvish of Golden Bomber is never seen without his elaborate kabuki-style makeup.
