Show This Week いよいよ今週!

Vanguard article by Megan Fresh, May 30, 2013The Center for Japanese Studies at Portland State University will present a show co-directed by Prof. Wynn Kiyama and myself, featuring a talented group of students in a grand showcase of Japanese performing arts.

Our students have worked very hard this term and are just about ready to go on! The show — DRAMA! DANCE! DRUMS! — is this week, and it is going to be a good one!

The show will include the following:

  • Komai (kyôgen dance)
  • Kouta (“little songs” with shamisen accompaniment)
  • Kyôgen (medieval farce)
  • Manzai (two-person stand-up comedy)
  • Nihon buyô (traditional dance)
  • Nô & butô dance fusion (a mix of medieval and modern)
  • Rakugo
  • Taiko (group drumming)

Drama! Dance! Drums! is on Thursday June 6, 2013 in the Recital Hall (rm. 75) at PSU’s Lincoln Hall. The show starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. FREE and open to the public.

We are getting great press for the show, and seats are limited. Be sure to arrive a little early for a memorable evening of Japanese performing arts!
