Last weekend, I had great fun DANCING in the Bon Odori Festival
It was my first time of trying Japanese cultural dance
also looks like this weekend I would get connected to Japanese Dance again, but this time it's more to contemporary (my fav)

I will be attending 'IT IS JUST ME COUGHING' performance at the Annexe Gallery (my usual weekend hangout spot) on Sunday

It is presented by The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur & Dance Asia &
supported by Asahi Beer Arts Foundation

Well below is a lil' info on the performance:
“It Is Just Me Coughing” is a contemporary dance performance featuring prominent Japanese artist, Zan Yamashita. Based on the haiku poems of Housai Ozaki, “It Is Just Me Coughing” interpolates Zan Yamashita’s physical interpretation of Ozaki’s haiku as the texts are projected onto a wall."

This dance is: Directed, visualized and performed by Zan Yamashita.

Sounds interesting kan?

I will be there to see how the interpretations of Haiku are made, physically.
Moreover, poetry and dance-what a good match, I so hope I won't miss this..
