English Rakugo Club IS Happening!!!【英語落語研究会始動!】


I’m very excited to announce that English Rakugo Club IS happening!!!

The three exclamation marks might make this sound more exciting than it actually is, but I have just booked a performing arts space for the first Rakugo Club meeting!!!

The first meeting will be in the workshop style, covering the basic of Rakugo, so you don’t want to miss the first one if you want to get involved!!!

Please let me know EARLY if you are participating. As the venue cost is covered by yours truly, I would like to cancel if there is not enough interest.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity!!!

VENUE: Kete Aronui (80 Onehunga Mall, Onehunga)

TIME: 10:30AM-2:30PM, Sunday 6 October 2019

COST: $10 koha to cover the venue hire and other expenses

Please let me know if you can’t afford the cost. Also, it is free for minors. Once community is established, I will apply for funding so you won’t have to pay.

I will eventually apply for funding so that you won’t have to pay a koha to join the meeting, but we gotta start somewhere!

If you happen to know a free venue I could use, please let me know as well.

    1. Hi Aya, thank you for coming to the performance this afternoon!!! I’m very glad that you are interested in joining the club!!! Regarding filming, it is really important to establish a safe environment first, so could you wait until everybody feels comfortable doing that? (so no filming in October) In NZ, there are many people who would not feel comfortable being filmed, so I need to honour that as an organiser. Looking forward to seeing you again in October!!!
