Join the Ackland Art Museum for an exploration of the performing arts and artistic life in post-war Japan, as Chris Nelson (Anthropology, UNC-Chapel Hill) ¬†examines the role of theater and comedy in shaping and reshaping Japanese cultural memory. Nelson’s recent book, Dancing with the Dead: Memory, Performance, and Everyday Life in Postwar Okinawa, examines traditional forms of social organization and genres of ritual and performance, building on several years of ethnographic and archival research that he carried out in Okinawa, Japan.
Presented in connection with Elegance and Extravagance: Japanese Posters from the Merrill C. Berman Collection.
