Celebrate cherry blossoms and spring at Japan Society! Encounter the elegant and refined art form of nihon buyo , traditional Japanese dance, led by master dancer Bando Kotoji to the accompaniment of live music . From his vast repertoire, Kotoji has selected four vibrant dances for this Kabuki Dance program, including the celebratory Sanbaso dance (「三番叟」); the sorrowful Cho no Michiyuki dance (The Last Journey of Two Butterflies 「蝶の道行」), about two lovers who meet in the afterworld as butterflies, the dramatic dance Tamatori Ama (The Pearl Diver , 「珠取海女」) about a woman in search of a stolen treasure; and Yoshino-yama (Yoshino Mountain , 「吉野山」), an excerpt from the famous kabuki play Yoshitsune Senbon-zakura , Yoshitsune and the Thousand Cherry Trees , whose story is set on the mountain famous for its magnificent cherry blossoms.
