Shamisen & Odori: The Music and Dance of Kabuki brings you live shamisen music and live kabuki dance in an intimate studio setting. Focusing on male-form dances, and Edo (early Tokyo) characters and stories, you'll meet warriors, angels, men-about-town, courtesans and drunken revellers - the real stuff of kabuki! Shamisen & Odori: The Music and Dance of Kabuki brings you a rare connoisseur performance so close you can touch the dancers.
The performance features music by TOKIWAZU Mozibei, a renowned and award-winning shamisen player who regularly works at the professional kabuki theatre in Tokyo. Also featured is dance by FUJIMA Shogo, a celebrated performer who has been seen on international stages and was the star of TomoeArts Odori: The World of Kabuki Dance. Joining them is TomoeArts' Artistic Director, Colleen Lanki (Fujima Sayu).
