Japan-Vietnam Performing Arts Festival at WARABI-ZA

Warabi-za, the theater company located in Semboku City,  is proudly hosting an international performing arts event as a part of the Japan-Mekong Exchange Year 2009.

Title: An Evining for Japanese and Vietnamese Traditional Performing Arts
Place: Warabi-za  Theater (Inside of Tazawako Art Village)
Date and Time: December 13th, 2009. Opening from 15:30~

This is an FREE EVENT.
Reservation is required.

Warabi-za evolves a style that is one of a kind, now hardly found in Modern Japanese theater companies. They represent their strong belief in preserving Asian traditional arts, particularly the traditional and indigenous arts in Japan.

Touring Internationally as well

Although they take their theme from traditional topics,  they also challenge controversial topics in aproachable style : A musical romantic comedies about local Jinday Curry ("Cupid wa doko" opening in Jan.) and more serious musical drama dealing with issues of gender in traditional values ("Maiko-no-kura" now playing).

They are truly a gem of our rural culture that is now under-represented in media. They proudly take a mission to carry on to the next generation.
