IWAMI KAGURA U.S Tour Event

On Friday, September 21, 2012 the Consulate General of Japan in Miami will be hosting a Japanese Shinto Theatrical Dance Performance between 11am - 12pm at FIU's Graham Center room 243. This dance group will be coming from Hamada City, Shimane Prefecture to perform an ancient Japanese dance called "Iwami Kagura" as part of their U.S. Tour,

Iwami Kagura was originally performed by Shinto priests at the yearly autumn festival as a sign of gratitude to the Shinto gods for their help in producing a bountiful harvest. The tradition was handed down from the Shinto priests to the common people and developed as a traditional folk art performance.

Event is free and open to all students and faculty.
