We checked out a contemporary dance performance by choreographer KAIJI MORIYAMA at the New National Theater Tokyo. This "CIRCUS" dance piece was designed to be enjoyed by both adults and children and uses fantastic costumes by Kozue Hibino, and music by Koji Kawase. We thought that this show was one of the best thing that Tokyo has to offer to young curious minds.
During this year's goldren week holiday, we checked out KOZUE HIBINO, a Japanese costume deisgner's exhibition at ICHIHARA LAKESIDE MUSEUM in Chiba. This modern art museum is located right on Lake Takataki, and hosts a region wide art festival called "ICHIHARA ART x MIX" every Spring.
You may know Kozue Hibino's work from NHK's educational channel "Nihongo de Asobo". Her costumes are whimsical, pop, eerie and avant-garde. Our kids totally loved the exhibit!
