The theme of Salon Series in the 19th year season is “traditional dance in the contemporary world.”

Salon Series No. 58 on March 12 will investigate the role of Itinerant performers in Japan and Russia, and their surprising connections. Russian Gypsy female soloists paved the way for Anna Pavlova’s acceptance and success, while Anna Pavlova influenced the new dance movement in 1920s in Japan.

Take a look into the culture of spicy and soulful Gypsy entertainment and how it had positioned a solo female performer in Russia in comparison to an accepted role of a woman in traditional society and on stage.
  
Discover Ayako-mai, which was discovered in 1950-60s as a gem by folklore scholars, unknown among them for 300 hundred years.  This dance style is freer and rustic than Kabuki dance, supposedly performed by the women itinerant groups, such as Okuni’s, who is considered as the founder of Kabuki in the early 17th century.  

Get to know female itinerant performers who had established the foundation of Kabuki even though women does not take part in Kabuki.  

Experience the story of Anna Pavlova in Japan as a beautiful example of true art, which crosses borders, and challenges stereotypes.

Ms. Kulakova will perform a Russian Gypsy dance while Sachiyo Ito and Company will present itinerant performers’ dance of the pre-Kabuki period. Also, Ms. Kulakova and Ms. Ito will perform their contemporary creations, evolved from and inspired by each tradition.

A collaboration inspired by contemporary flower arrangement by Katsuya Nishimori with live music.

We will present the contemporary florist Katsuya Nishimori and his team, who will install an epic-sized creative floral arrangement on stage. Sachiyo Ito will decompose the arrangement inspired by the theme “Flower petals fall, but flowers do not.” The dance will be an improvisation as she faces and clashes with the beauty of the flowers- the form, and fights to retain the beauty of the flowers without form, which echoes after momentary existence.  From destruction to final re-integration of art and identity, the dance will be accompanied by live music and singinging.

Guest Artists: Katsuya Nishimori, Beth Griffith, Egil Rostad, Yukio Tsuji SS-57-guests
Dancer: Sachiyo Ito
Admission: $15 general, $10 senior & student
SPECIAL OFFER – Combined ticket for both programs (#56/#57): $25 ($15 senior/student)

Inspired by Salon Series’ 2014 theme, “Ma” (special concept of time and space in Japanese culture), the idea of “Yoin,” (resonance) and its importance in Japanese performing arts and literature will be investigated through music, dance and poetry. John Stevenson will discuss the resonance in haiku and its influence on western poetry, while James Nyoraku Schlefer will talk about resonance in Japanese music. Schlefer will play his shakuhachi music, to which Sachiyo Ito will dance. The program will be concluded by an improvisational dance and music by Ito and Schlefer on a haiku composed by Stevenson.
