Shish-Odori at The Thames Festival 2012
The Shishi-Odori (Deer Dance) is a Japanese folk art dance from the Tohoku region of Japan.
The Japan Foundation with the help of The Oshu Kanatsu-Ryu Shishi-Odori Dance Troupe performed the spectacular Japanese folk art Shishi-Odori.
the costumes looked really cool and the dance was interesting.
The detail on some parts of he costumes was impressive, and they performed the dance a few times to a pretty large crowd.
This is what I filmed at the Thames Festival 2012.
Below is the costume description.
The costume features the Sasara, Kashira (Shishi-Gashira), Tsuno, maku, Kuyomon and the Taiko drum.
When performing the masks at the top looked pretty fierce
and during the display a couple of the performers would battle like deer.
