An Invitation to Kagura: Hidden Gem of the Traditional Japanese Performing Arts by David Petersen

A unique, meticulously researched introduction to the exotic pageantry of kagura (Shinto theater), a performance style with roots predating even noh drama. This concise ebook version covers everything from the history of the kagura to choreography, masks, costumes, and even selected plays. If you think that Japanese theater ends with noh and kabuki...think again!

About the Author

I am a writer and educator, with degrees in psychology and theater studies, certificates in English teaching and Japanese proficiency, and more than a decade of experience as a professional translator.


I was born in Canada, but have spent most of my adult life traveling and working abroad. Along the way, I've climbed Mt. Fuji, touched noses with a Maori elder in New Zealand, snorkeled in Fiji, survived a tsunami evacuation in Samoa (and more recently, Nagasaki), snuggled a koala in Australia, chaperoned high schoolers on a bus tour of England, thrown up in the Czech Republic, attended grad school in Malta, worked on an archaeological dig in Spain, had laser therapy in Germany, taught at a university in Hungary, scaled pyramids in Mexico...


Translation is my bread and butter, and writing is my passion.
