"The intensely beautiful and luxuriously designed costumes are sufficient to light up the stage, the effects achieved by the props are hypnotic"
An enchanting Japanese folk tale is presented by choreographer Saeko Ichinohe and Dancers, a well-known Asian-American Dance Company in New York. Luminous water scenes abound with playful sea creatures such as shrimp, dragon fish, and tortoises that live in the castle of the sea princess--who falls in love with young and handsome fisherman. This folk story has an intriguing twist at the end. Expertly danced with beautiful costumes and using movements and music from Eastern and Western cultures, this stunning performance is joyous entertainment. Highly recommended as an absolute must-see event.
