A Presentation of Pentangle’s Dana Emmons Arts in Education Program
Kuniko YamamotoMagical Mask, Mime, and Music of Japan
Wednesday, December 12, 2012, 9:30 a.m.
A favorite performer and educator at Disney's Epcot Center, Kuniko Yamamoto has charmed audiences from The Kennedy Center to Eskimo villages in Alaska. Kuniko enchants audiences of every age with dramatic storytelling using myths and fables from ancient and modern Japan, spiced with social revelations to educate and amuse. Incorporating traditional Japanese music, origami, handcrafted masks, stylized movement and even a touch of magic, she creates an artistic balance of illusion and reality. Every program encourages students to interact and participate, including a comparison of Japanese and American tales, arts, and cultural elements during a question and answer session.
Tickets for all AIE programs are $5/person. Performances are open to schools, seniors, and the general public – advance ticket reservations are highly recommended. Ticket reservation forms can be downloaded here. Or click here to see a video preview of the entire 2012-2013 AIE Season!
