    “Cho Kabuki”:

    Established in 2016, “Cho Kabuki” is a unique stage performance which combines kabuki, a form of traditional Japanese theater with a 400-year history, and cutting-edge ICT technology, including “Kirari!” (*), Ultra-realistic Communication Technology from Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (“NTT”). The show co-stars one of today’s most popular kabuki performers, Nakamura Shido, alongside the world’s biggest virtual diva, Hatsune Miku, who will play the role of a villain for the first time.

    NTT-Shochiku Partners:

    A voluntary association established by NTT and Shochiku Co. Through this partnership, NTT and Shochiku aim to realize a new entertainment business by developing the use of ICT in actual kabuki performances.

     The on-demand program is arranged in the following way:

    • Introductory film – The Appeal of Cho Kabuki
    • Act 1 – MIYAKOZOME KABUKI NO IRODORI
      This new dance production will be shown for the first time ever. In the last scene, Hatsune Miku uses her long hair as part of the performance which is one of the highlights.
    • Act 2 – OTOGIZOSHI KOI NO SUGATAE
      This returns to the stage after its initial play at the Niconico Net Chokaigi, April 2021. Based on a traditional kabuki performance, it is a dramatic story and shows many beautiful places in Kyoto. Hatsune Miku plays the villain role and her performance and appearance is a mix of that of woman and spider. The last scene is a dramatic battle scene and is not to be missed.
