Last night I went to the Japan Arts Dance Event(JADE), an international dance event held over three days in Tokyo.

The first two days were devoted to
Butoh, which is a modern Japanese dance created by Tatsumi Hijikata.

I went to the final performance on the Monday evening, which was devoted to humour in dance and featured dancers from Russia and America. I had a very enjoyable evening and the dancing was very interesting and beautiful, if a little strange at times.
