Senpai Zenkai:
Doing the Ginza Aster!

Over twenty-five Deep Japan senpai gathered at Tokyo's Ginza Aster last Monday to enjoy an evening of sampling several amazing Chinese dishes while learning about the history of not only the restaurant but also Ginza (did you know there was once also a "Kinza"?). In addition to the handful of regular participants, we also welcomed a record number of first timers. Thanks to everyone who showed up and made the night special - and our best Senpai Zenkai to date. You can read Ruth's post and senpai comments here.

A special thanks to Ginza Aster for making the night possible. All of us appreciate your exquisite food and warm hospitality!

From the Producer
After viewing a reading of SEVEN in Prague in 2014, Sarajean was
determined to bring dramatic performance of SEVEN to Tokyo. Marrying
her commitment to social justice and love of theatre, Sarajean decided
to make Tokyo part of the global 2016 campaign to raise awareness
about issues facing women in Japan as well as human rights violations
around the world.

SEVEN is based on interviews conducted with seven women activists and
was written by seven women playwrights - Paula Cizmar, Catherine
Filloux, Gail Kriegel, Carol K. Mack, Ruth Margraff, Anna Deavere
Smith and Susan Yankowitz. SEVEN is presented with gratitude to Vital
Voices Global Partnership.

SEVEN is being performed as part of the global March to March, more
than 100 (possible) performances worldwide will spotlight
International Women’s Month. SEVEN aims to raise awareness about the
issues women face all around the world by telling the stories of real
women who have survived challenges and are helping better women’s
lives. SEVEN was developed with support from the Vital Voices Global
