Odori is an exuberant form of traditional dance that began as public street performance in 17th-century, Edo-period Japan. Closely related to kabuki, which only has male performers, Odori is performed by men, women, and children.


Get to experience the elegant art of Odori, a traditional Japanese dance this October where The Asian Civilisations Museum hosts performers from the famed Nishikawa Company for the first time in Singapore. Consistently rated five stars, Nishikawa-ryu has entertained and dazzled audiences around the world with their stylish mix of historical and contemporary dance. The programme includes Masako Nishikawa, Principal Dancer, “The Lion” make-up demonstration, Children’s Dance, “The Lion” by Kirk Nishikawa Dixon, NOSS, and dialogue with Nishikawa-ryu.
