While the term Super Kabuki now refers to all kabuki performances that combine traditional movement with modern theater technology, ‘Super Kabuki’ is the most famous production of Yamato Takeru, produced by Ennosuke Ichikawa in 1985. The production featured sped-up traditional kabuki acting accompanied by a pre-recorded, modern music background, and also took advantage of the newest advances in stage art, costumes, sound effects, and lighting.
