Japan-Society of Houston, in partnership with Japan Society, New York, presents Nihon Buyo (literally “Japanese Dance”), a refined art form performed by artists skillfully trained in kabuki dance.

The presentation will feature dance pieces Toba-e and Boléro, along with performances by Japanese musicians playing traditional Japanese instruments.

Toba-e is a comedic work in the style of kabuki dance, based on the animal-centric Japanese caricatures of the same name. Boléro is a riveting new dance set to French composer Maurice Rovel’s score, retelling the heartbreaking and vengeful legend of Anchin and Kiyohime. Expertly choregraphed by esteemed Hanayagi Genkuro, the works will offer a unique insight in Japanese culture and deliver indelible, ravishing images featuring esteemed performers.
