The Inherited Tradition Today

オープニング公演 石見神楽×ダンス「SHOKI -鍾馗-」 公開中

There, the precious model of dances and music being transmitted across generations exists.

Many performing arts have been treasured and handed down from parents to their children and from adults to children in their daily lives. There, in the expressive power alive in the tradition, we perceive the appeal of ancient Japanese performing arts and the pride of transmitters.

In this festival, the traditional performing arts preserved mainly in the prefecture are introduced by various means, through films, live performances, and collaborations with contemporary artists, which convey the appeal of the tradition.
