Study Hard, Play Hard よく学び、よく遊べ

There is a Japanese saying that goes, “study hard, play hard,” (yoku manabi, yoku asobe). Though I will spend most of 2013 working to finish writing my dissertation, I am also going to make an effort to enjoy myself by doing some things other than writing.

Rakugo is great to write about, but its much more enjoyable to perform. I am therefore very grateful to already have a couple of opportunities to perform English rakugo lined up for 2013.

I have been asked to perform rakugo at Portland Community College (Sylvania campus) on February 7, 2013, at 1:00 p.m., and I will probably do a rakugo story at student show I will be co-directing at Portland State University on June 6, 2013, at 7:00 p.m.

Stay tuned for more details and flyers.

I will also travel to Japan for about a month in February and March. During that time I will conduct some research, buy some more used books, and listen to as much live rakugo as possible.

After all… all work and no play makes Matt a dull boy.
