Nihon Buyo (日本舞踊, Japanese dance) developed out of a long tradition. Staged dances appeared in 17th century Japan along with kabuki theatre. Today Nihon Buyo has five large schools, one of which is the Nishikawa, with its history of three centuries.
Born in 1960, Nishikawa Minosuke first appeared on stage at the age of three. He graduated from Waseda University and then studied in Britain. He now teaches at Nihon University and will perform for us the dance ‘Ayatsuri Sambaso’ [操り三番叟] followed by dance demonstrations and audience participation. Patrick L. Hatcher, Ph.D., Kiriyama Distinguished Fellow at the Center, will moderate.
This event is free and open to the public. For reservations call 415-422-6828.
