This screening is part of the TomoeArts Salon Series. This year's series contrasts two major themes in kabuki dance plays: demons and beautiful maidens. As last year, we will be screening full videos of live performances from Shôchiku's Kabuki Meisakusen Series, which feature some of the greatest kabuki performances of the 20th and 21st centuries. The recordings have English-language commentary, and we will also discuss important story and performance elements.
We are celebrating the second year of our partnership with the UBC Library. All salons will be held at UBC's I. K. Barber Learning Centre, 1961 East Mall - in room 256 (The Chilcotin Room). The nearest parking to the Centre are the Rose Garden and North Parkades. Parking at UBC is $7 after 5pm. Presented by TomoeArts & UBC Library.
