Open rehearsal and discussion meeting: Kohei KOBAYASHI Presents “UENOUES YOSE -About the situation that we can only laugh-“

In the “UENOYES YOSE” by Kohei Kobayashi, an artist, we held an open rehearsal / discussion meeting entitled “UENOUES YOSE -About the situation that we can only laugh-” in 2018.

The gathering place called “YOSE” secures the diversity of society by bringing people together to laugh on the subject matter of the emotions of people spilling out of the social system and events likely to destroy the social order.

This project creates an opportunity for a diverse group of people to gather together with artists (who specializes in being skeptical of his or her daily order) and RAKUGO artists & performers with the regular guests of Oedo Ueno Hirokoji-tei who are laughter veterans.

In addition, we aim to create a new “YOSE” that people with disabilities and people with different cultural backgrounds can enjoy together.
