Workshop at the Traditional Japanese Dance and Music for Adults and Accompanying Children in July
Traditional Japanese Dance and Music for Adults and Accompanying Children on Saturday July 6 is an introductory performance that even the beginners of traditional Japanese dance and music can have a good time in a relaxed atmosphere. Let's have a bodily sensation of the charm of traditional performing arts through three steps: Experience, Learn, and Watch and Listen! It is a fun event filled with new discovery.
◆ Experience [Let’s experience traditional Japanese dance and music at the National Theatre Large Rehearsal Room – Dance, hand props, and traditional Japanese music instruments –]
(Advance registration is necessary / the number of participants limited)
Prior to the start of the performance, a “hands-on” experience session will be held. You can experience choreography of dances, hand props such as an umbrella, and traditional Japanese music instruments such as shime-daiko (a rope-tensioned drum). You can also enjoy the lessons for beginners by actual performers. Please join us!
The photos below show the Workshop held last year. Hand props such as Japanese fans and swords were used in traditional Japanese dance, and demonstration of the shamisen and kotsuzumi were performed as Japanese traditional music.
Both workshops have simple lessons by professionals of traditional Japanese dance and music, so even young children are welcome to join the event. Let’s experience the atmosphere of the Large Rehearsal Room of the National Theatre, where the professional performers usually use!
