About

To officially commemorate Commodore Perry's historic visit to Japan and the U.S. and Japan's subsequent signing of the Treaty of Peace and Amity in 1854, the Embassy of Japan and the Kennedy Center are collaborating to present more than 50 dancers and musicians in a visually stunning performance of kyogen theater and dance presented by celebrated Japanese producer and director Mannojo Nomura and his company Ethnos.

The English translation of "Nippongaku" is "stream of Japanese entertainment." In this ceremonial commemoration, representatives from the Embassy will speak, and the U.S. and Japan national anthems will be sung.
All events and artists subject to change without prior notice.
