Performance | Discover Dance! series
In The Many Faces of Japanese Dance, Fujima Sayū – Artistic Director of Vancouver’s TomoeArts – joins forces with Nishikawa Kayo, Artistic Director of Burnaby’s Satsuki-kai, and dancers from both companies for an illuminating presentation of nihon buyoh, or Japanese classical and traditional dance. Ranging from theatrical kabuki to joyful folk-derived pieces and shin-buyoh or ‘new’ dances to popular music, they share some of the styles of nihon buyoh, its rich history and culture, and its distinctive tradition of training, with knowledge handed down from teacher to disciple.
