Abstract(in English) Recently, some researcher has explored that synchronization of eye-blinks among appreciators who view a movie or Rakugo performance. In the current study, the eye-blink synchronization (=less temporal discrepancy of eye-blink between two persons or more) was calculated using eye-blinks responses gain from two groups; (1) audience members (6 out of 21 first-time viewers and 6 out of 31 frequent viewers) who were viewing a live Rakugo performance in situ and (2) audience members (15 first-time viewers and 15 frequent viewers) who were viewing the videotaped performance in experimental settings. The results demonstrated that the mean values and deviations of temporal discrepancy (D^) were much lower within among audience members in situ than those of the individual experimental settings. Regarding audience member who had almost no knowledge about Rakugo, the D^ s of group settings were approximately 50% compared to that of individual settings. These findings suggest that interactions in vaudeville setting seemed to influence each other in attractive way and it may contribute to create a "field" that would guide audience to synchronization.
