MONTBLANC

On May 25th at the Kiyomizu temple in Kyoto, with JKD collaborating on visual images, artist Ryoko Aoki performed a 1-night only Nopera Live Show where she mixed traditional Japanese ”Noh” with contemporary music and fashion. This event was held exclusively for the 50 VIP guests that were invited by fountain pen brand MONTBLANC, on releasing their limited edition product in collaboration with ”Chiso”, a Kyo Yuzen store long-established since 1555. The performance was based on ”Aoinoue” from “The Tale of Genji” written in 1008, in which strong emotions of sorrow and resentment are portrayed. Japan's oldest form of art ”Noh” combined with contemporary music and a dynamic cube-shaped screen projecting edgy visual images, many experienced and witnessed the mixture of Japanese aesthetics at its high level.
