Coming soon: Nihon Buyo Performance and Panel Discussion

We are planning an online event featuring past performances by master Nichibu dancer Satsuki Onoe with commentary, panel discussion by local arts leaders, and a Q&A session. This event is for Japanese arts experts and newcomers alike. Discover one of Japan's most traditional performance art forms, Nichibu. Learn how to appreciate Nichibu like a professional artist. Engage in a live conversation with Onoe herself and the local Japanese arts community.


Check back periodically as Spring approaches for more details!
