On Thursday evening, July 6, the Asian Art Museum will host MATCHA,

bay area's dynamic arts and cultural landscape--all in a
stimulating environs.

For July's MATCHA session, East meets West as experimental ensemble

Flirtation with Fusion. They'll perform three dances inspired by  
traditional Japanese Noh and Kyogen theater fused with a variety of

galleries. Inquiring minds can get the inside scoop of our summer  
exhibition A Curious Affair: The Fascination Between East and West,
