The exhibition is part of 制約の中での表現・Expression in Constraint: Movement and Color, also featuring three dance pieces choreographed and produced by Ayana Yonesaka. Bridging the disparate mediums of modern dance and Japanese katazome, this culturally nuanced showcase explores the delicate but profound beauty born of technical and emotional constraints.

Workshop, Aug. 31 – Sept. 1, noon – 2 pm

Make your own stencil for katazome dyeing! Toyoki Yonesaka leads a hands-on experience in cutting a paper stencil used in katazome dyeing. Participants will cut a traditional karakusa (arabesque) pattern on katagami paper from Japan. Available for 10 participants each day on a first-come, first-served basis. Free.
