While I was away the glorious Mitsu Salmon wrote to tell me about a couple of events she has coming up:
The Peacock Boat
By Ima Tenko and Kiraza
March 20 and 21 at 7pm
March 21 and 22 at 3pm
The piece draws from the symbols of the peacock as a powerful creature able to overcome obstacles and the boat as the means to hope. These images are metaphors for lives of the geisha, who once inhabited the walls as well as we the audience.
The Peacock Boat includes live shamisen, costumes reconstructed from old kimonos and dresses and original choreography.
The performance will take place in the traditional theater house (tatami mat seating)

Urbanguild is on Kiyamachi between Sanjo and Shijo. Look for the sign outside. Walking from Sanjo it is on the left side about 150 meters down. It is on the 3rd floor.
