Wabi Sabi

BBC FOUR Monday 16 March 2009

In Search Of Wabi Sabi With Marcel Theroux

New programme
Monday 16 March
9.00-10.30pm BBC FOUR

If you understand “wabi sabi”, the Japanese say, then you will understand Japan and the Japanese, yet they have immense difficulty explaining the concept themselves.

In this film, Marcel Theroux travels across Japan in an attempt to discover the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete – the literal meaning of “wabi sabi”.

In a challenging, funny, frustrating and ultimately rewarding journey, Marcel seeks to solve the riddle. In his quest to find out more, he immerses himself in three very different lifestyles.

From living with a local family in Tokyo; to sampling “wabi sabi” objects and practices in the old capital, Kyoto; and training in a remote Buddhist Zen Monastery on an Eastern Japanese mountain, Marcel comes to understand that it is a concept that must be experienced and felt rather than defined in words.

John Pollex tells me he has seen some clips of this programme and it looks very interesting and gives a good insight to Wabi Sabi _ some of you may like to see if you can watch it?
