July Topic change - a msg from Cont. Ed. committee
• Attention: July Cont. Ed. topic has been changed from 'Serving tea in contemporary Japan' to 'Traveling the Tokaido Road Then and Now' by Megumi Kobayachi, president, Japan - America Society.
As soon as Monzie or someone else from Cont. Ed. Committee tells me, I'll post more info on the subject. It still will be 10:30 am to 12 noon Thursday, July 21, in the Tateuchi Community Room. See you there!
• Jeanne P. (current Unit 86 secretary) and I recently met at the 'Next Wave Butoh Dance Festival' - the event was June 3-18 blast, with many performers, including the early originators of the butoh dance movement Hiroko & Koichi Tamano (SF/Japan). One of our guides - Joan Laage - performed a very interesting 'spider' dance. Jeanne, herself a dancer and and English teacher is going to blog about it here soon - so watch out for her report.
• September 18th, Sunday: marriage of the Polish Poetry Salon and Joan Laage Japanese butoh dance 'Oscar' - watch this space for future's announcements...
