Yuko Kaseki - Japanese Festival @ Japanese Garden The Hague

Hundred year anniversary of the Japanese Garden in The Hague

The Japanese Garden in The Hague is 100 years old and that was the reason for a Japanese festival. This celebration was at April 27th. I brought my camera with me, with the hope that the blossoms (sakura) were already here. But it was still cold in the Netherlands, so the blossomperiod had some delay. Also you see a butoh-performance of Yuko Kaseki at the pavilion in the Japanese Garden.

Nao Katafuchi, Neud Photo & Das Ding at 330 live, The Hague


Shortly before the last Queensday in the Netherlands (for a while) the Japanese/American Nao Katafuchi came to the Netherlands for a Japanese synthwave night and took two of his colleagues/friends with him: Neud Photo (USA) and Das Ding (Netherlands). Result: a very interesting and surprising evening with dancable ‘beats and waves’.
