kabuki

Mon, Dec 19, 2016, 6-8pm

Sennosuke Wakatsuki is modernizing the kabuki form. With percussion master Shijuro Tachibana, he leads a workshop for intermediary- to advanced-level students and professionals in dance and theater. The class foregrounds the core skills related to traditional Japanese art and performance, and is accompanied by Hyakkyou Fukuhara (bamboo flute) and Chizuru Kineya (shamisen).

Immediately preceding the workshop, participants are invited to observe a brief Master Apprentice presentation, with shamisen apprentice Kiku Tarura performing with master artist Tatsu Aoki, and taiko apprentice Helen Nagata performing with master artist Kioto Aoki. Musical accompaniment for the duets is provided by grandmasters Tachibana, Fukuhara, Kineya, and Yoshinojo Fujima. Grandmaster Shunojo Fujima provides traditional dance.
