Itchiku Kubota is considered one of the most important Japanese kimono artists of the 20th-century. His stunning kimono reflect the creative vision and burning passion he had for his work, and it is not surprising that the theatre drew his interest. Kubota had a strong theatrical sense, and the gorgeous, oversized kimono he produced were ideal garments for the stage. Dr. Jacqueline M. Atkins will demonstrate how Kubota’s youthful love for the theatre laid the groundwork for his later participation in Noh theatre as well as his own stage presentations, both of which used Kubota’s dramatic kimono to enhance the theatrical effects.
