Onikenbai Workshops

In November I attended a 3 day workshop where I was taught Onikenbai - a traditional dance that comes from Iwate Prefecture in Japan. It is a dance not practiced all over Japan, and this particular group that came out to Sydney are the oldest practitioners of it.

While the weekend was about learning from them, I managed to fit in a bit of sketching on the last day when they put on a small performance for us in full costume. To see more sketches and artwork I gave to them as a gift please visit my blog here.
