Why We Dance - Children's Kagura Troupe *RERUN
Devastating rains hit western Japan in July 2018, nearly wiping out a community's cherished tradition - a children's troupe performing ancient Kagura theater. But their coach quickly raised funds from locals to replace badly damaged props and costumes. To celebrate and thank supporters, the troupe plans a special show. A 12-year-old boy who's a lead performer must prepare 2 sacred dances to foster tranquility. During months of rigorous practice, he and his coach explore Kagura's timeless lessons.
