Kabuki, a 400-year old Japanese form of theater known for its beauty and drama and still popular in modern day Japan, is an artistic tradition both faithful to the past and a creative space of innovation and invention. Join us for a dynamic lecture and demonstration with veteranonnagata (male actor specializing in female roles), Kyozo Nakamura. Mr. Nakamura will introduce the basics of kabuki and talk about his own path to become a ripened actor. The audience will also begin their kabuki performance training, copying Nakamura's movements in an interactive call and response.

Following the performance, the gallery will be open to enjoy.

This event is free, but registration is required.
