Performing Arts

As the world slows to a pause, Japan Society Performing Arts has moved online in the new series JS-ENCORE, offering a bi-weekly selection of past performances showing traditional and contemporary works spanning dance, music, and theater. Click here to view current selections and a complete streaming schedule.
“In these troubled times, we are still optimistic because we know the light and energy that artists can bring to the world. We are happy that Japan Society has such gems of artistry in our archives, and that we can share it with you online. All of the programs I selected for JS-ENCORE are performances by Japanese artists who are willing to help people in New York, the U.S., and beyond to keep their strong spirits and smiles.” 
Yoko Shioya, Artistic Director
