Beyond the Border Between Okinawa and Asia

Date Posted: 2002-02-21

The ethno-improvisational show to be held at Sugar Hall on March 3 consists of two sets, in the first of which each artist will perform individually. Then in the second set, which is sure to be the most interesting of the two for everyone, the participating artists will shift into a collaborative session performing the particular type of music in which he or she specializes. As one of the performers makes a start, the others will join in, leading to the creation of an original piece of music with no written score that will never again be played in the same way. The stage setting will be designed to enable the artists to express their talent to the fullest. The organizers hope that a new music scene will be established through this event.

Date: March. 3 (Sun.) Open 2:30 p.m., show 3:00 p.m.
Place: Sugar Hall in Sashiki Town
Tickets: Advance 2,500, at door 3,000
