“JO-HA-KYU” is a concept from the traditional Japanese arts of Noh theater and gagaku court music, also applied to syllogism. The whole image of the show will be explored by interpreting “JO-HA-KYU” as a cycle between our own development and the world’s innovative progress.
“JO” stands for exposition; or the beginning. It is the first step we take to change ourselves and the world through generating wonderful ideas at every opportunity.
“HA”, literally meaning “to break”, refers to a slower stage in development. New ideas sometimes face hurdles which we must take the time to overcome. “HA” is a time when progress seems to slow, providing the time needed to generate new ideas. Just like in the butterfly’s pupa, it’s a time of preparation for the next phase of changes.
Then moving rapidly, we come to the culmination of our efforts with “KYU”. “KYU” is both the successful completion of our growth, as well as a time when a new wave of changes is generated, leading into the next spiral of “JO”.
New ideas always inspire changes. We generate ideas through learning, and ideas bring about reformations, new ways of thinking and acting. Through these reformations, new ideas will be born and handed over to the next generation.
This continual spiral between people and the world’s innovative changes is the theme of TEDxKyoto 2013. We hope participants will share and enjoy the journey.
