Invitation from Sachiyo Ito and Company – Salon Series No. 67: Prayer for Healing and Peace

Salon Series No. 67: Prayer for Healing and Peace through the Symbolism of Cranes, the Origami Project, and Amazing Grace

Dear Everyone,

Please join us for the re-broadcasting of the Virtual Salon Series No. 67: Prayer for Healing on Thursday November 5th at 6pm EDT.

Facing the crises of the pandemic, Sachiyo Ito and Company will offer a prayer and healing message through performance.

We will perform dances based on Japanese traditional symbols for peace, dances depicting cranes, Seiten no Tsuru (Cranes in the Blue Sky) and Chiyo no Tomozuru (One thousand-year Old Crane). The crane, a symbol of longevity, is said to live for one thousand years and has also been a symbol for auspicious occasions. Ito will also perform two dances: Memories and Dedication, which will honor the lives of those who have departed from us.

Following the performances, artist and schoolteacher Colin McNally, who completed the Origami Project will teach the virtual audience how to fold paper cranes.

Closing the program, the international singer and actress Beth Griffith will perform “Amazing Grace” to help guide us towards light and healing.

With world class guest artists and speakers, the program has artistically and intellectually educated and inspired NY audiences. Under the theme of the future generation of traditional performing arts”, three programs of Salon Series were presented and enjoyed by our supporting audiences: Japanese Dance and Experimental Workshop and Forum for the Very Young; Traditional Japanese Dance and Theater in Contemporary Performing Arts; Expression in Traditional and Contemporary Japanese Dance; and enjoyed by our supporting audiences.

2For the 2019 Salon Series, the following  topics are planned:
 
Salon Series #64: Dances   and Cultures of the Himalayas and  Japan

Salon Series #65: On the Human Spirit  on June 9, 2019; 

Salon Series #66: The Sun, or the Moon? on October 21, 2019.

 I particularly love your solo “To the Sea”; it conveys a feeling of eternity and continuity
to me.  Your movement is subtle, delicate, but unforgettable.” -Christa Meadows
 
“Lovely theme – water – well interpreted by Ito Sensei’s fans in her solo, cranes were most elegant and calming to watch.”–Dalienne Majors

“It was awesome!” -Jong Koo Lee
 
“Beautiful and awesome.” -Anonymous
