Embracing Pain and Pleasure in Japanese Culture

0 out of 5


Our upcoming lecture will focus on the nuanced realms of pain and pleasure in Japanese culture. During this event we will dive into unconventional perspectives. Through the art of shibari as a form of sensory pleasure and pain and the intricate world of kabuki where emotions are expressed through performance, we will understand the transformation of feelings. Moreover, the lecture will also shed light on the unique experience of wearing a kimono. It will unveil the fine balance between the tactile pleasures and the subtle discomforts inherent in this traditional garment. Join us as we navigate the complex interplay of sensations within these cultural expressions. The talk will offer a unique lens through which to appreciate the profound connections between pain, pleasure, and the cultural wisdom of Japan.
