Tonight the public is invited to an original traditional Japanese music and dance show, as well as a chat, over tea, on Japanese traditions. Refined and passed from one generation to another, for centuries, the Nihon Buyou dance and the music played on the shamisen are relatively unknown in Romania. Nihon Buyou (“Japanese dance”) is a traditional Japanese dance form. Boasting a history of nearly four centuries, Nihon Buyou flourished during the Edo period, influenced by Kabuki theatre and the Noh Mai dance. Nowadays, several Nihon Buyou schools are attested in Japan, but the basic moves are the same.
The participation fee is RON 30.
Venue: Seeds for Happiness Centre, 8pm; Address: 16 Fabrica de Chibrituri St.
