七夕：THE SEVENTH SENSE:
LOVE SONGS FROM THE EROTIC ORBITS
A Celebration of Tanabata
The auspicious! The mystical! The cosmic! The night lovers cross the bridge over the Milky Way and the sevens on the calendar collide! Come enter the bamboo grove of sensuality, the aesthetic arena, the galaxy of the seventh sense. Come celebrate this astral extravaganza with a 2017 multimedia remix of the Tanabata legend in contemporary Tokyo.
