Nihon Buyo - Wisteria Maiden will be danced by Midori Anami. The performance schedule is at 5pm. JPA Kimono Project & Japanese Dance Performances - Kimono: A Tradition of Sustainable Fashion.Free Public Programjapanperformingarts.org/cultural-project/kimono-exhibition-2023/Saturday, June 17th 2023315 Theatre - near Times Square1pm - 5:30pm ( Events ends at 5:30pm)Booking: Eventbrite www.eventbrite.com/e/641641907217At 12:30 PM, the door will open. Those who made reservations will have priority entranceinto the theater. As long as the visitor numbers at any timing are within the venue's capacity limit,the visitors without reservations can also enter the theater, but if exceeding the limit, new visitors will have to wait until there's a vacancy in the capacity.This event is designed to have a unique mixture of cultural exchange contents with the main pillar of introducing kimono costume as an environmentally sustainable clothing, together with dancing performances wearing kimono/yukata, as well as hands-on workshop experiences in traditional crafts and techniques. Having the kimono project (presentation of kimono details and showing how to wear yukata) as the main program, we will have two of Japan's Big Three Bon Odori dances (Awa Odori and Guji Odori); Kumihimo (traditional string braiding) and Furoshiki (traditional cloth wrapping) workshops; kids' Awa Odori dance and Japanese candy/snack time; and Nihon Buyo (traditional Japanese dance) show.The spectator and stage spaces at the auditorium are generally in the same flat floor level with the exception of staircase level seats. Using this space composition, we prepared many experience-based event programs.The venue has some seats available if you prefer to just observe the event (rather than actively participating in the programs).People can freely go in and out of the theater, but the theater capacity cannot be exceeded. If the visitor number were to exceed the capacity, visitors have to wait at the entrance.If you like Japanese culture, this is going to be one of your 2023 highlights! If you are new to Japanese culture, you will have your first fun cultural immersion opportunity!#JPANYC #JPA #Japan #Japanese #Culture #Cultural #Performance ... See MoreSee Less
