Za Daikon welcomes everyone to join their weekly reading sessions on Zoom taking place Thursdays from July 8th to 29th. They also invite community members to participate in the project by writing, reciting or creating artwork to express the Japanese classic passage by an iconic female author, Sei Shōnagon, “HARU WA AKEBONO” from the 11th century. Participants will send photos or videos of their homemade creation and these submissions will be compiled into collages and shared on Za Daikon’s website and social media platforms. 

Za Daikon is a Vancouver-based amateur Japanese theatrical group formed in 1994. They have annually been producing and performing Japanese comedies, folktales, and staged readings at the Powell Street Festival and the JALTA “Ohanashi Happyoukai” as well as other various community events. Performances are in Japanese with English surtitles and voice-over descriptions where possible. This year, they invite everyone to their fun ‘community collage’ project: Let’s Learn and Enjoy the Japanese Classic Passage “HARU WA AKEBONO…” with ‘Za Daikon’!
