In honor of Japan Spring, traditional dance master Bando Kotoji demonstrates and discusses scenes from famous kabuki plays including “Yoshino-yama,” set on a famous Japanese mountain known for its cherry blossoms.The intricate art of kabuki involves costume, makeup, postures, and movement all supported by live music for shamisen, chanter, and percussion.
Gorgeous! Looks like such a fun day… I’m sorry I couldn’t make it!
Yes, it was great, but there’s still plenty of time to catch Japan Spring fever!
Interesting mixture of drama, creativity, music and grace!
I am a big fan of Kabuki. There really is nothing like the Kabuki performances anywhere in the world.
Yes, it’s pretty amazing. Thanks for commenting on the post!
