Shubukai’s Revitalizing Tradition XIII and Illinois Arts Council Master Apprentice Final Presentation @ High Concept Labs at Mana Contemporary

Originally created 13 years ago by Grandmaster Yoshinojo Fujima to highlight founder of Shubukai, Grandmaster Shunojo Fujima, the Revitalizing Tradition series has been accomplished using a variety of methods such as lecture, workshop, demonstration, and performance. Our arts tradition is centered around the presentation of the art, the preservation of the aesthetics, and the transmission of the legacy. The 13th Revitalizing Tradition will present five different dance pieces, with an array of traditional kimono, dance style, and gender presentation. This year we are honored to have Sanjuro Toyoaki playing shamisen as traditionally played in the geisha house (ozashiki).
