Kuromori Kagura: Japanese Folklore and Dance

$20 at door, $15 advance, $10 AA&CC members and TU students with ID. Purchase tickets here: http://tickets.tuboxoffice.com/

Kagura refers to a type of Japanese folk music and dance tributed to the gods of Shintoism. Kuromori Kagura was developed several hundred years ago to specifically worship the divine spirit of the Kuromori Shrine, which is located in the town of Yamaguchi in Iwate Prefecture. In 2006, the Japanese government designated Kuromori Kagura an Intangible Cultural Folk Asset. This 12 member company’s premier tour in the U.S. (10/26-11/5), following its performance at the National Theater in Tokyo in June, 2012A, brings to the stage a dozen dance and music pieces from the Kuromori Kagura repertoire of 74 pieces. Organized by Japan Society, NY

    For my Baltimore area Asian peeps. The performers come from Iwate Prefecture-the area devastated by the Tohoku Earthquake & Tsunami last year. Show some love.

    I'll be there with my beloved Towson University Vietnamese Student Association. And my newly formed Towson U Asian Student Association will be co-hosting.

    Looks like a really cool event. Hope to see you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
