Kawakami Sadayakko was born Sada Koyama (小山 贞) and trained as a geisha.
Under the stage name Sada Yacco she worked at Kawakami-theater and was one of the first actresses to a Japanese theater. In 1899 they went as the first theater group from Japan on a tour around the world. This was followed by performances in Paris in 1900 at the World’s Fair. Sadayakkos dance style influenced the modern American dance.

More Info:

The Third Republic, known as the ‘belle époque’, was a period of lively, articulate and surprisingly radical feminist activity in France, borne out of the contradiction between the Republican ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity and the reality of intense and systematic gender discrimination. Yet, it also was a period of intense and varied artistic production, with women disproving the critical nearconsensus that art was a masculine activity by writing, painting, performing, sculpting, and even displaying an interest in the new “seventh art” of cinema. This book explores all these facets of the period, weaving them into a complex, multi-stranded argument about the importance of this rich period of French women’s history.
