The first session with ADaPT Tokyo


First Big Step in Japanese Dance World

In Japan, there has been few groundwork for media performance for years. However, there is few infrastructure in this field. I have been constructing interdisciplinary dance researchers' network inside Japan and Asia Pacific. I have started working for them since 2004. In the rehearsal of ADaPT Live Event Participating Performance Teams, a test session was held. A Japanese choreographer, Saeko, danced her piece "Veil," and Johannes Birringer and staffs at Nottingham (UK), and Kelly Gottesman at Wayne State University saw her dance image. I believe that it was a first big step in Japanese dance world.
