Organized by Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre
Nihon Buyo, literally “Japanese dance,” is a modern art form performed by artists who train vigorously in Kabuki dance. Geimaruza, Japan’s young and rising stars—all alumni of the prestigious Tokyo University of the Arts’ Nihon Buyo program—grace the stage with a gorgeous program including traditional Kabuki and folk dances and original neo-traditional arrangements.
Performed alongside an ensemble of musicians, (shamisen, fue, taiko, otsuzumi, kotsuzumi) and chanters, the evening includes Ayatsuri Sanbaso (Puppet Sanbaso), Oshukubai (The Nightingale in the Plum Tree) and musical selections. Crowning the program is the dynamic Shunkashuto, (Four Seasons), a quartet of dances celebrating the richness of Japan’s exquisite four seasons.
