Musician, Film Speaker, Film Director His Excellency Demon Kogure & Lute Player Kakushin Tomoyoshi at play!

His Excellency Demon Kogure, a wizard of Japanese popular culture while being a virtuoso of traditional culture, appears on the SHITA COME stage as Benshi, a film speaker. As his stage counterpart H. E. Demon chose a Satsuma-style lute player, Kakushin Tomoyoshi, with whom H. E. Demon has performed numerous live shows in his vigorous collaborative activities with Japanese traditional music and art performers. This time, together with Kakushin, H. E. Demon challenges old monochromatic silent films, giving a katsuben performance. (H. E. Demon will give the narrative during the screening accompanied by Kakushin's lute performance.) This event is also packed with a music performance by H. E. Demon and Kakushin and the screening of H. E. Demon's director and screenplay debut film. Seiko Ito will also be giving an address from the stage with the two.
