Dances of Vice: Deco Japan and The Heart of the Modern Girl
Saturday, May 5, 7pm-12am

Dances of Vice and the Japan Society present an evening with the modern girl, or Moga, and her kaleidoscopic world of dancing, drinking, and late night revelry. Learn a new step on the dancefloor, sip an intoxicating tonic and take in the sultry sounds of live pre-War jazz by the Kuni Mikami Jazz Quintet featuring vocalist Mari Koga. Also, watch as fashionable flirtation comes to life as real Mogas wearing deco era style fashion designed by Mutsumi Gee of Allure Original Styles shimmy through the halls of Japan Society’s exhibition Deco Japan: Shaping Art and Cutlure 1920-1945. Period attire is strongly encouraged!
