Indigo Threads / 藍・つむぐ:Weaving Japanese Craftsmanship & American Heritage

Headliner Exhibition of the 2019 National Cherry Blossom Festival
Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

The Japan Information & Culture Center (JICC), Embassy of Japan, DC, is proud to present “Indigo Threads / 藍 • つむぐ: Weaving Japanese Craftsmanship & American Heritage,” an exhibition exploring the rich history of indigo dyed fabric and garments in Japan, including the current hype on Japanese denim and jeans. While the United States is undisputedly known to be the birthplace of blue jeans, traditional Japanese craftsmanship has helped resurrect the classical American blue jean in extraordinary ways in recent history. Visitors are invited to explore the question, “Why Japan?” through the eyes of the historian, manufacturer, marketer, consumer, and more.

This three-month exhibition will also include a series of lectures, films, and workshops, held in collaboration with Kurashiki City.

“Indigo Threads” is the headliner exhibition of the 2019 National Cherry Blossom Festival, which celebrates the strong and enduring friendship between Japan and the United States, and the gift of 3,000 cherry trees given by Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the City of Washington, DC in 1912.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The exhibition will run from March 25 through June 28 and will be open to the public during regular JICC hours, 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The JICC will be closed on April 19 in observance of Good Friday, May 1 in observance of The Day of the Enthronement of His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince, and May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.

THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN: GLUCK’S MERLIN’S ISLAND and ULLMANN’S THE EMPEROR OF ATLANTIS @ The Barns at Wolf Trap
Jun 26 @ 7:30 pm

Merlin’s Island: Gluck’s clever opera is a light-hearted parody that takes nothing seriously.

The Emperor of Atlantis: Death decides to teach mankind a lesson in this powerfully dramatic work.

MERLIN’S ISLAND

Music by Christoph Willibald Gluck
Libretto by Louis Anseaume, based on Lesage and D’Orneval’s Le monde renversé

Two Parisians are shipwrecked on an island paradise where the rich marry the poor, lawyers are always honest, spouses are always faithful, and artists are wealthier than businessmen. Heaven? Not quite. A takeoff on 18th century French vaudeville, Merlin’s Island is brimming with inspired music, beautiful ensembles, and heartwarming characters.

THE EMPEROR OF ATLANTIS

Music by Viktor Ullmann
Libretto by Peter Kien
A New Production

A mad emperor declares universal war against everyone and offends Death. The result is a chaotic world in which the living no longer laugh, the dying no longer die, and life and death have lost their meaning. This daring satire was written while Ullmann was interned in the Nazis’ Terezín ghetto and examines the arrogance of unstoppable power and humanity’s resilience. This controversial and brilliant opera is full of humor and poignancy, with music that ranges from blues and German folk tunes to a Bach chorale.

  • Inside the Opera pre-show talk begins 1 hour before curtain at The Barns
  • Performance running time: 2.5 hours including one intermission
  • Sung in French and German with projected English translations
