Poster

 

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.

學術講座於3月27日舉行,題為「聚落與交通:道路網路與中國城鄉社會結構變遷」。周教授以他多年的研究經驗,探討道路網絡的發展如何改變城鄉結構。周教授指出,以往聚落與聚落之間,往往有一日路程之隔,作為人們在長途旅程中的落腳點。然而,當高速公路和高速鐵路等現代道路網絡普及後,以往的中途站便因交通便捷而沒落,都市的規模也因此變得更大。周教授的例子說明,城鄉的社會科學研究不能局限於某城或某鄉本身,周...
