Description:

Izumo no Okuni is believed to have invented the new theatrical art form of kabuki (“the art of singing and dancing”). She created a new style of an exclusively female troupe, but in 1629 shōgun Tokugawa Iemitsu forbade women from performing in kabuki. As young men as performer generated the same issues of prostitution and corruption of morals, the performances were restricted to older men, which is a standing practice even today.
