Performing Arts 2022-23 Season

Performing Arts 2022-2023 Season

We are proud to announce our upcoming season of live, in-person performances, consisting of all in-person events. Japan Society’s Artistic Director Yoko Shioya says, “We are excited to introduce these highlights from an exceptional performing arts season, filled with magical works borne out of an amalgamation of Japanese and American imagination. Taking in source material from Japan — such as literature, history and rituals — as a starting point for creation, Japanese and non-Japanese artists teamed up and equally contributed their own originality to each show.” In addition to purchasing a ticket, consider donating today to support the very best in Japanese performing arts in NYC!
