Salon Series No. 45. Gestures, Mime and Dance
Sunday February 3, 2013, 3:00 PM 4:00 PM

Salon Series No.45 on February 3, 2013 is titled “Gestures in Japanese Dance and Mime” The Japanese people have tended to use more gestures than other peoples, particularly compared to those in the west, and in much subtle manner. The Japanese are known to be less verbal. Why and how we use them in daily life and see any of those are reflected in dance. Our featured guest is a mime, Yass Hakoshima who had lead Yass Hakoshima Movement Theater for 40 years in USA and Europe. Mr. Hakoshima and Sachiyo Ito will give demonstrations to illustrate how a mime draws gestures from daily life as a comparison and to gain further insight. Excerpts from Kabuki dances including Excerpt from /Azuma Hakkei/, and /Haru no Umi/ choreographed by Ito as well as Hakoshima’s ever-popular comic piece, “Fisherman,” will be performed.

Now in its 15th Year, Salon Series is an ongoing program of informative and educational lectures, lecture-demonstrations and performances aimed at those who are interested in deepening their knowledge of the performing arts of Japan. The unique combination of education and entertainment has inspired NY audiences artistically, and intellectually. The series is held on Sunday afternoons three times a year at Tenri Cultural Institute. Refreshments will be served during Q/A.

Tickets: $15 general; $10 student and senior.
