Soju Kai presented several lecture/performances in 2012, and we are currently scheduling our 2013 tour.
Above is a photo from our February 16 presentation at East Shore Unitarian Church (Bellevue,WA) for their Adult Program. The performance had 'Healing in Noh' as its theme, and focused on the stories 'Hagoromo' and 'Atsumori'. It featured a lecture 'What is Noh?', dance and chant, and Kumiko's sumi ink paintings.
Our next performance will be on March 24th at Nagomi Tea House in Seattle.
We plan to do a Heike Biwa Katari (storytelling) series this spring and summer. We have long wanted to do a Heike Monogatari storytelling series in this style, the way it has been done in Japan for over a thousand years.
2013 will be an exciting year!
