On Wednesday, June 5, we are delighted to have Prof. Mauricio Martinez Rodriguez, Visiting Research Scholar at Nichibunken, as a speaker. Prof. Martinez has been establishing a Web Encyclopedia of Japanese Performing Arts in Spanish, which introduces to the Spanish-speaking world Japanese traditional music, dance, theater, intangible heritage, and the Okinawan and Ainu cultures. In his lecture, he will talk about the concept and process of this ambitious undertaking and examine the reception of Japanese performing arts in the Spanish-cultural sphere. We hope to have your participation. Prof. Richard Emmert, a certified Kita school noh instructor and the founder of Theatre Nohgaku, will join us as commentator. (Language: English)
