[Meeting Report ] #186 February 17

Post date: Feb 19, 2018 8:05:07 AM

While, until just recently, "bubbly" dance implied something more secretive, these days it means a sort of vivid dance performances featuring unique choreography and retro costumes, caricaturizing Japan's economic mania during 1980s-90s, so-called the "bubble" period. For some reason, our meeting tonight started off with the simulation of this. The character dancing was meant to be Nora Hirano, a comedienne who's gotten popular, making fun of people and life styles in the "bubble" period. See the photos.

We had one guest. Thanks for joining!
