Jeremy Wade: there is no end to more  
Thursday, January 28 + Friday, January 29, 8 PM

Jeremy Wade delves into Japanese kawaii (cute) culture – from the infantile fluff of Hello Kitty to the doe-eyed teenage love stories of anime – and its ubiquitous global influence. Through dance, stories, animation and video, Wade peeks under the slick, silly surface of kawaii to reveal its more insidious subtext, while exposing our relationship to the "endless more" that exists just beyond our grasp.

Join us for sake, snacks and other beverages before and after the show in Evelyn's Café.

Commissioned by Japan Society and co-produced by Hebbel am Ufer, Berlin and CCN Franche-Comté Belfort, Les Subsistances, Lyon. Supported by the Endowment for the Performing Arts.
