The festival went really well 😀 We were so busy we didn’t get to take many photos. I hope some will be posted on the net by others who were there on the night.
We started with some dancing and then played Kompira Fune Fune with the guests, remembering to start slow in order to not trip up either player. The song is funny as it starts with a fairly simple flow and then suddenly compacts many words into a small musical phrase so that if you have started over-confident you regret it ^^
Hachiko dancing – notice the little cranes that were hung all over the ceiling 🙂
We then alternated dance performance with Hachizaru’s Tea Ceremony and the game of Tora Tora, ending with time for photos and conversation. Here are a few pictures of the space, taken when our Taikomochi/Jikata Geisha was able to assume the role of photographer for a few minutes.
Thank you for having us Plymouth College of Art!
