Understanding The Meaning of ‘Geisha’

Stills from Memoirs Of A Geisha, In this film I learnt that “the very word ‘Geisha’ means ‘Artist’, and to be a geisha is to be judged as a moving work of art” Geisha are Secret Entertainers, they sell their skills not theirs bodies.

Agony and pain live side by side for them. They create a secret world only of beauty.

‘You cannot call yourself a true geisha until you can stop a man in his tracks with just a single look’

‘Geisha (芸者?), geiko (芸子) or geigi (芸妓) are traditional Japanese female entertainers who act as hostesses and whose skills include performing various Japanese arts such as classical music, dance and games.’
