Here are some updates on what NUS Sado Club did in May 2010:
Our Club had a busy month in May with 3 performances!
First up was a performance and workshop at ‘Japan Expo‘, organized by Dunman High School.
DHS had also invited Waseda Shibuya High School’s Sado Club to perform for them. Since WSHS practices the Urasenke Sado, we hope our performance and workshop taught the participants that while there are different tea schools and styles, the ideals behind this tradition is the same.
Special Thanks to Dunman High School for inviting us to this event!
One week after ‘Japan Expo’, our Club was invited by Victoria Junior College’s Japanese Club to give a mini lecture and performance at their school.
VJC’s Japanese Club also invited Singapore Polytechnic’s Sado Club [Urasenke] along, and we had a short comparison session at the end of our performance.
A BIG Thank You to VJC Japanese Club and teacher in-charge for inviting us, and also to VJC’s Principal Mr Chan Poh Meng, who graced the event!
Our final performance for the month took place at the FASS Open House 2010. Our Club, together with NUS Nihon Buyo Club represented the ‘cultural element’ of the Japanese Studies Department. We had some good-natured volunteers who participated in our performance. Hope to see you in NUS and our Club in the near future!
Our series of Cultural performances was completed with NUS Koto Kotton (Koto Club). Despite being only about a year old, the Koto Club put up a great performance. The Koto Club is under the instruction of Ms Kitai, a Japanese Language Instructor from NUS Centre of Language Studies.
We hope you enjoyed our performances!
