The Spring

About the dance The annual celebration of bloom, life, and fauna; the Spring is a celebration of light, air, and earth and inspired by the goddess women of the Guild. Choreographed by Alex Ung, Kelli Carnes, Lisa Kwak, and Prasti Purdum. About the music Marewrew is a vocal group comprised of women whose goal is to keep the tradition of Ainu songs called "Upopo" alive. In 2019, they released the 3rd album "Mike Mike Nociw ". In 2020, Marewrew received attention for the song they provided Netflix for the movie “Ju-On: Origins.”              Traditional Ainu song. This is a game for four people. Two people sit face-to-face with a trap rope between them and some sweets in the loop of the trap. One person holds each end of the rope. Two more people pretend to be mice—a parent and child. The parent mouse and the little mouse tickle the knees of the people holding the rope in order to distract them. In the meantime, they try to catch the sweets in the circle. If the people pull the rope quick enough and the mice are caught, the parent and child mice lose.

A public park since 1987, it was started in 1927 by Fujitaro Kubota, a Japanese emigrant. Today, it is maintained as a public park by the Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Kubota Garden Foundation. Fujitaro Kubota was interested in the garden becoming a public space. The family approached the City of Seattle in the 1970's to discuss their purchase of the garden, but the City declined. In the late 1980's, when developers were eager to purchase the 20-acre property and build condominiums, community members advocated with the City of Seattle to purchase the garden. Councilwoman Jeanette Williams found the necessary funds to make the purchase in 1987. Several of those community members formed Kubota Garden Foundation in 1989 to continue a partnership with the City and assure the preservation of the entire garden as envisioned by the Kubota family. ​ *Source: kubotagarden.org*
