Awa Odori is one of the most well-known Japanese traditional dances in Tokushima prefecture, Shikoku with a 400 years of history. Its festivals are as big as Samba carnivals in Brazil.
TAKARABUNE has pushed the limits of this venerable traditional art: their signature dance style is so aggressive and vigorous that it has been characterized as ‘dance beyond Awa Odori’. Their performanceat a number of Awa Odori events held in Tokyo has generated growing interest among a variety of media, and the group has gained a reputation as the hottest Awa Odori group (ren) in Japan.
In this hour-long show we will present you a wide variety of Awa Odori, from the traditional form to more modern, creative forms, as well as a performance of Japanese traditional drums and a percussion.
The art of Awa Odori is hard to master, but the basic form is easy to learn. You don’t believe it? You will have a chance to learn and dance Awa Odori with us! Come for a memorable night with cool dances, entertaining performances, and fun dancing!
We would appreciate it if you could forward this invitation to your members.
