This year Shubukai will be presenting its annual 43rd performance. The foundational goal is to maintain aesthetic integrity through continued training and performance in the traditional arts, including taiko, shamisen, and classical dance.
This year, we will welcome Fujima Yurino from Australia, Grandmaster Hyakkyou Fukuhara, a narimono and bamboo flute specialist from Tokyo. She is one of a handful of certified performers from the traditional Fukuhara clan who is performing actively in the Kabuki-Nagauta tradition. Hyakkyou works in the classical tradition and in more contemporary settings, such as in modern music collaborations and creating media arts as well; and Puppet Artist Tom Lee, a student of Nishikawa Koryu V, performing traditional kuruma ningyo, (cart puppetry). The Toyoaki Shamisen ensemble will provide live accompaniment, and Tsukasa Taiko will also be featured, performing traditional taiko.
