Winningstad Theatre @ PCPA

This innovative concert from Artistic Director Michelle Fujii explores the taiko art form’s ability to speak to us individually and collectively. THREE weaves distinct forms of classical Japanese art Nihon Buyo, Koto and Shakuhachi into contemporary conversations with the drum.
This collaboration celebrates Michelle's exploration of taiko as an active force that continues to evolve and inspire curiosity.
Nihon Buyo is the art form of traditional Japanese dance, vibrant today with a history of nearly four centuries. The Koto (13 string plucked zither) and Shakuhachi (flute held vertically like a recorder) are instruments seemingly unchanged over the ages that continue to reveal new possibilities.
Join more conversations!
