Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas: University Lecture Series

November 2, 2018

The Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas has partnered with the University of Washington’s Jackson School of International Studies and the Elliott Bay Book Company to host a fall lecture series focusing on performing arts.

“Hear what history and innovation sound like during this series of lecture-demonstrations. We’ll explore nine evolving creative forms of music, dance, and drama that build on Asian performing arts traditions and find new ways to reach audiences around the world. A talented group of presenters will introduce some unique elements of music and movement each week. You will experience the special sounds of a variety of instruments, learn a few rhythms, and gain a few pointers on looking and listening through their demonstrations.”

Upcoming events:

NOV 10
Movement and Metaphor in South Indian Court Dance
NOV 17
Modes and Melodies of Classical Persian Music
Exploring Kyogen: Comical Drama of Medieval Japan
