HomeArts and Culture

Since 1953, Japan Society Performing Arts has been committed to presenting both traditional arts from Japan as well as the most recent innovations in contemporary music, dance and theater. The Spring 2021 Performing Arts Season includes innovative, virtual programs featuring local artists as well as contemporary and traditional performers based in Japan. Taking this time of physical distancing as an opportunity, these programs offer new ways to bring people together from around the world to share moments and inspiration unhindered by traditional limitations of live performance and travel.
