West Meets East Matsuri is a showcase of Japanese culture based performances that express the mixture of both the west and east. Directly after WW2, the Japanese built up their pop culture to specifically mimic that of the United States but by the early 2000s their roles switched, and the United States began borrowing from Japanese pop culture. Our show demonstrates traditional Japanese performances and their transition into the modern, exemplifying how they have taken from western culture and how we have taken from their eastern culture.
