Chieko talks about the beauty of and her love for Japanese performing folk arts, complete with her own enchanting dance-and-taiko performance. A mini dance workshop will wrap up the event. Don’t miss the colorful “Leave it to Chieko!”
Chieko Kojima first encountered Japanese folk dancing when she moved to Sado to join Sado no Kuni Ondekoza in 1976. She is noted for her original style of dance in Kodo’s taiko-based performances. Aside from her Kodo performances, Chieko also seeks new encounters through performances in the female song-and-dance trio Hanayui and produces her own expressive solo performances and collaborations in her spirited project Yukiai. Chieko’s vivid portrayal of the goddess Uzume in Tamasaburo Bando’s “Amaterasu” in 2006 illustrated her unique talent.
