Celebrating The Life of Animals in Japanese Art
With special guests Anubrata Chatterjee, tabla, and Virgil Gadson, dancer
This performance brings together the elements of Japan's spiritual philosophy and the importance of the animal world, as represented in literature, art, dance, and music. To illustrate the soundscape of our story, the koto's melodic timbre recalls Japan's history with chant, the tabla reminds us of the heartbeat, and the featured element of dance echoes the natural world of movement.
