Welcome to the world of Japanese traditional performing arts. I am LUNA, the president of LUNA Production. As a child, I was captivated by the beauty of Western people and their arts, such as ballet and opera.
I used to be skeptical of the notion that "Japanese women were the most beautiful in the world," but one day, I had the privilege of witnessing Tamasaburo Bando, the Kabuki actor and living national treasure, performing onnagata (female-form) Japanese dance, and I was utterly enchanted.
Together with Yuko Wada, our supervisor, we are committed to sharing the enchanting allure of Japan's unique traditional performing arts with the world. We eagerly anticipate offers and support from around the globe.

Our offering includes classical and contemporary Japanese dance, with performances lasting from 5 to 20 minutes per piece and featuring 1 to 10 or more performers. The budget can vary based on the choice between CD-backed or live music performances. We can customize the number of performers for both women's and men's dances to match your preferred budget. If live music is preferred, we offer a selection of instruments, such as shamisen, biwa, koto, flute, taiko, tsuzumi, and more, based on the program's requirements. Please arrange for stage management, lighting, and sound, covering the associated costs on your end. Here's an example of a performance:

"Fujimusume"One of the popular Kabuki pieces, "Fujimusume," tells the story of a wisteria spirit who takes on the form of a woman, experiences the joys and sorrows of love, and eventually returns to the wisteria trellis.

Traditional performing arts, now designated as national Important Intangible Cultural Properties, were once considered avant-garde in their early days and were even known as 'kawahara' (riverbank) beggars.
Take, for example, Noh, which gained prominence when Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, the warlord from the Warring States period, generously sponsored Kan'ami and Zeami, two Noh performers, providing them with the financial support that elevated their artistry to its zenith. These traditions have been passed down for several hundred years and continue to be revered today.
In medieval Italy, wealthy families like the Medicis became patrons of the arts, supporting world-class artists of the time such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, whose masterpieces enriched the world.Both the creation and preservation of traditional performing arts rely on financial support. By becoming a sponsor, you contribute to the preservation of these traditions, the creation of avant-garde art for our times, and the establishment of traditions for the future.
Please become a sponsor to preserve the traditional arts, create more avant-garde art for the times, and create the traditions of the future!
In addition to our public events, we offer the option to bring our artists to special celebrity home parties and birthday celebrations, adding an extra touch of festive excitement to your gatherings.
