    A special Ch˘kabuki program in Ky˘to at the Minamiza. The world of Kabuki and the world of otaku collide for the 4th time in Kabuki history (for the first time in a major Kabuki theater)! Resulting from this spectacular collision, a new genre, the Ch˘kabuki (literally Ultra-Kabuki), was born in 2016 [more details]. Nakamura Shid˘ shares the stage with the virtual 3D creature Hatsune Miku. The main program will is staged either once or twice. The limited edition is staged the 4th, 7th, 9th, 12th, 16th, 19th, 21st and 23rd of August in the afternoon at 15:30 (4th, 12th, 16th, 21st) or in the evening at 18:00 (7th, 9th, 19th, 23rd).
