Masterpiece Theatre: Legends of the Japanese Kabuki Stage

Museo Diocesano di Venezia, Venice
30 June - 06 September 2012

The exhibition Masterpiece Theatre: Legends of the Japanese Kabuki Stage presents Ana Tzarev's particular fondness for Japanese culture, history and the art. Her work enhances the figures of Kabuki theatre through vibrant colours and dense matter, capturing its essence.

Ana Tzarev rigorously studied Kabuki theatre and has been attending performances for four decades. At the beginning of these studies, Ana Tzarev paid particular interest to the family of actors known as Ichikawa. This theatre family has been a prominent power in Japanese culture since the 17th century.
