<p><strong>SETSUHI + HIDEO</strong></p>
<p>Large-scale Japanese calligraphy demonstration accompanied by Shakuhachi Bamboo Flute performance with workshops to follow.</p>
<p>Having been interested in calligraphy during her childhood, Setsuhi Shiraishi became a calligraphy master at 22 years old. She is pursuing her own unique style of calligraphy while expressing the world of traditional calligraphy. The world she creates by subliming calligraphy into a composite art through collaboration with musical and fine arts is highly regarded. She has also been active outside of Japan, attracting many fans from around the world through her live collaborative performances with music.</p>
<p>Sikeno Hideo is a Shakuhachi Bamboo Flute player. He learned the classical Zen Shakuhachi style in the 1980's and began performances collaborating with different types of dancers, such as modern, contemporary, and Butoh, in the 90's. He has international performance activities mostly in the San Francisco Bay area, Florida, Puerto Rico, New York, France and Spain; in addition to his domestic ones in Japan.</p>
