The World of Ballet Movies – Kamakura, the Birthplace of Japanese Ballet

09:00–17:00 (Closed Mon)・Dec 18, 2020–Mar 14, 2021・Kamakura City Kawakita Film Museum 2-2-12 Yukinoshita Kamakura-city, Kanagawa

In 1948, The Red Shoes sparked a worldwide ballet craze, and young aspiring dancers flocked to ballet school. Eliana Pavlova often referred to as “the mother of Japanese ballet,” arrived in Japan in 1919, where she established the country’s first ballet studio, together with her younger sister Nadezhda in Kamakura.

This exhibition looks back at the Pavlova sisters’ contribution and introduces the beauty of ballet movies. In commemoration of the 80th anniversary of Eliana’s death, this exhibition follows the footsteps of the Pavlova sisters, who laid the foundation for the rise of ballet in Japan.
