We're excited to launch our fundraising campaign through the "power2give/PugetSound presented by ArtsFund" arts donation platform.
Please consider joining us in this exciting project and make a donation - then tell your friends and fellow lovers of all things Japanese! It's a unique chance to get a glimpse of the refined entertainment enjoyed by the ancient Japanese court nobles.
Our goal for this campaign is to bring Mr. Tohgi and his artistry and expertise in Japan's court music to a local high school in Seattle. We hope students can enjoy an enriching cultural experience that will open their eyes to the wider world and the continuity of traditions through the centuries, giving them new horizons to explore. This presentation will be accessible in English!
Thank you for your valuable help in bring this rarefied art form to more people in Seattle!
“The Beauty of Noh: Tomoe + Yoshinaka” can only make it to Seattle with your support. Noh performances of this caliber, given by true masters of this classical theatre form, come to the US infrequently. JACLab is fortunate to count on the participation of Munenori Takeda, one of Japan’s young Noh stars, whose family has belonged to the pre-eminent Kanze style / school of Noh for generations.
We're always looking for volunteers to help us make all our unique projects happen. If you are fascinated by all things Japanese - but especially by its cultural arts - we'd love to hear from you! We're a small team of committed individuals looking for like-minded colleagues who meet our Core Values:
- Service to Community
- Respect for Others
- Positive Collaboration
If you would like to be part of a volunteer committee, chair one, or help create a program that fulfills our mission and serves the general public, feel free to reach out to us through the Contact Us page. Thank you!
