Sachiyo Ito’s Salon Series this Fall will feature the aesthetics and concept of the Flower as a metaphor in Japanese performing arts and culture.
Salon Series 56 will present Ikebana, Japanese traditional flower arrangement and Japanese classical dances including, a kabuki dance, Shikunshi (the Four Noble Flowers). Additionally, Aki no Irokusa (Various Flowers in the Autumn), and Shiki no Hana (Flowers in Four Seasons), choreographed by Sachiyo Ito will be presented. The program will conclude with a discussion on aesthetics of Japanese classical dance, as it relates to the theory of the “flower” in Kadensho written by Zeami (c. 1363–1443).
