Date: 7th May 2014 (Wednesday)

Time: 5:30pm – 8:00pm

Venue: Liang Yi Museum, 181-199 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan


Date: 8th May 2014 (Thursday)

Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm

The Japanese Kodo (香道) and Kyogen (狂言) Demonstration are co-organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong's Anthropology Department and the Institute of Future Cities' (IOFC) Centre of Urban History, Culture and Media. The events are kindly sponsored by Liang Yi Museum, Hong Kong Express and Four Seasons Hotel.


On May 7, we invited Mr. Hachiya Souhitsu, designated Iemoto of Shinoryu Kodo, to give a talk on Kodo, Japanese incense culture. Like the elaborate tea ceremonies and flower arranging, kodo is one of the three classical Japanese refined arts. The talk featured an explanation of kodo's 500 years of history and a demonstration of the Japanese incense ceremony.


On May 8, we invited Mr. Nomura Matasaburo, Izumi style Kyogen master, for a Kyogen demonstration. Since 2011, Mr. Nomura has become the 14th Kyogen master to successively bear the name of Nomura Matasaburo. He performed at the Royal wedding ceremony of the Crown Prince and Princess of Japan. He participated in the Hollywood movie The Last Samurai and an NHK drama broadcasted in 2013. Kyogen is one of the traditional Japanese comic theatres which developed alongside Noh. The event featured an explanation of Kyogen history and a performance by Mr. Nomura and his son.
