Performing Arts

2011-2012 Season

From age-old legends to overnight sensations, and from intrinsically Japanese motifs to the latest trends, our Fall 2011/Spring 2012 Performing Arts Season takes new leaps and bounds with its wider-than-ever scope of offerings. Presenting the gamut of performing arts straight from Japan (plus some very familiar names from New York), this season includes poignant, unexpected and zany contemporary theater, the freshest and newest sounds in pop and experimental music, beautifully introspective contemporary dance, elegantly refined traditional dance and much much more.



Major support for Japan Society 2011-2012 Performing Arts Programs is provided by the Lila Wallace-Reader’s Digest Endowment Fund and the Endowment for the Performing Arts, established with leadership gifts from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Globus Family, Kyocera Corporation, The Starr Foundation and Toyota Motor Corporation.
MetLife Foundation is a Corporate Partner of Japan Society’s 2011-2012 Performing Arts season.
