For one-night only, Japan-Society of Houston (JASH) in partnership with Japan Society, New York present Nihon Buyo (literally “Japanese Dance”), an elegant, refined art form performed by artists skillfully trained in kabuki dance.

This presentation will feature dance pieces Toba-e and Boléro, along with performances by Japanese musicians playing traditional Japanese instruments.

Toba-e is a charming comedic work in the style of kabuki dance, based on the animal-centric Japanese caricatures of the same name. Boléro is a riveting new dance set to French composer Maurice Rovel’s score, retelling the heartbreaking and vengeful legend of Anchin and Kiyohime. Expertly choregraphed by esteemed Hanayagi Genkuro, the works will offer a unique insight in Japanese culture and deliver indelible, ravishing images featuring esteemed performers.

Prior to making its Texas debut, NIHON BUYO in the 21st Century will be presented in New York at Japan Society and in Washington, D.C. at The Kennedy Center.
