Choreographer Meada, a Japanese student of Lakhia, who runs the Japanese chapter of Kadamb along with Suhei Katsura and Yoko Yamazaki, wore Japanese costumes and accessories and made a great statement. Like Bengal, the folklore of Japan also believes if there is sunshine and rain at the same time, a fox’s wedding is on the cards! The dancers entered the performance area very gracefully wearing typical Japanese costumes with fans in hand. In the course of the dance, they revealed beautiful green costumes beneath. And their dance movements spoke of the rigour they had gone through. The three Japanese dancers provided a different perspective than what one is used to seeing.
