Sachiyo Ito and Company will celebrate its 60th Salon Series of its 19th season with an exquisitely elegant and vibrant program featuring live music, the Dancejapan ensemble, and guest artists from Japan and New York. The Salon Series is a series of performances with informative educational lectures and lecture-demonstrations on the performing arts of Japan. They are held on Sunday afternoons three times a year. A dialogue between artists and audience following each program provides further insights into art and culture, bridging the cultural differences. With world class guest artists and speakers, the program has artistically and intellectually educated and inspired NY audiences.

Supported by Consulate General of Japan in New York, our Celebration Concert will mark the milestone of the 60th presentation for the communities of New York and the tri-state area. Shogo Fujima, a Kabuki dancer from Japan is invited to join as a guest artist in this special occasion. The program will show a diversity of Japanese performing arts with music and dance from ancient to contemporary.

When: Sunday June, 18, at 5pm

Place: Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Ave NYC, Audience Entrance on 25th Street, between Lexington & 3rd Avenue

Tickets: $25, $20 for seniors and students

The concert program will begin with an ancient ceremony of purification and blessing with Etenraku, the Gagaku music. Following this are three Kabuki dances.  First, Mr. Fujima, our guest artist from Japan, will be joined by Ito for Matsu no Hagoromo (The Angel’s Robe at the Pine Tree) from the 19th century Kabuki repertoire, based on the Noh play Hagoromo (Angel’s Robe).

Following is the Kabuki dance, titled Seiten no Tsuru (Cranes in the Blue Sky). Then, Mr. Fujima will perform a Kabuki solo, excerpted from Masakado.  

The next work is titled Soshun (Early Spring), created by Ito for 7 dancers in the classical style. 

Also for this event, we have revived one of the most popular pieces from last year’s Salon Series, Flower Petals Fall, but not the Flowers, a collaboration with a contemporary florist.

The final work, Only Breath, is from our Poetry in Motion Concert. It celebrates humanism in the arts and the “oneness” of people across the boundaries of culture and ethnicity, with dancers representing multiple dance cultures from around the world.
 
The live accompaniment will include cello, biwa, shou, hichiriki, shakuhachi, electronic/synchronized music, percussions, voice and poetry recitation.

Guest Artists: Shogo Fujima, Tenri Gagaku Music Society of New York, Julia Kulakova, Jeeno Joseph, Tokumitsu Shibata, Yukio Tsuji, John Swartz, Chris Doi, Beth Griffith, Katsuya Nishimori, Elena Kimbering

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)
