Tetsuro Shigematsu at JIU

We were pleased to welcome Tetsuro Shigematsu to the Togane Campus. He performed for the students taking part in the Asia Summer Program 2015. Even though we had not initially planned this, he graciously accepted to come to Togane for a performance in the Mizuta Hall. He is Japanese Canadian and his performance which started with his daughter´s question, ´Why is it that you never cry, daddy?´ was exactly what we talked about in Brazil when we were kids. I´m not sure if everyone in the audience was able to follow the depth of this subject, but I certainly hope they took this performance as an excellent class on cross-culture understanding. 

Performance at the Mizuta Hall. 

Surprise! Practing Kendo one more time.
