Japanese Arts Performance at Hopkins

Japanese artist Shizumi Manale will give a performance titled "Exploring the Arts of Japan" at noon on Wednesday, April 19, in Shriver Hall on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Manale distills 1,600 years of Japanese dance, theater, music and literature in a single performance that offers audiences a window into the heart of the Japanese aesthetic. Her programs have included the ancient Noh and Kyogen theater traditions, Japanese fans, Samurai swordsmanship, calligraphy, Kimono costumes, masks, Haiku poems, and a tea ceremony performance.

The Washington Post said of Manale: "Her dancing was so exquisitely nuanced, delicate, and pliant that one gasped at its expertise."

This performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events and is co- sponsored with the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410- 516-7157.
