Japan Society’s annual Contemporary Dance Showcase is one of the most anticipated dance programs in New York, showcasing some of the very best dance from East Asia.

The lineup includes Tokyo choreographer Ryohei Kondo, founder of the popular all-male dance group Condors, Award-winning dancer and choreographer, and Maki Morishita, Seoul’s Ahn Ae-soon Dance Company performing Bul-ssang, a satiric take on Buddhist rituals fusing several forms of Asian traditional dance – including Indian kathak, Korean Jindo drum dancing and Chinese martial arts – with pop and street styles.

The event takes place on Friday, January 7th, and Saturday, January 8th, at 7:30pm at Japan Society, located at 333 E. 47th St.
