Building bridges with the diverse forms of dance culture that exist in Tokyo, this project will work with children to create an approach to dance based on multicultural coexistence, transcending differences of age, sex, nationality, and physicality. Through workshops led by professional choreographers and people involved in various forms of dance in communities, as well as through creative endeavors and performances by children themselves, it will not only teach participants certain forms, but also stimulate ideas about the act of creating dance itself, while also encouraging community interaction. Connecting schools and other community hubs with various cultural resources, this project will create a scheme for generating dance in each neighborhood.
The Committee was established in 2018 by creators, researchers, and artists who share an interest in building networks that transcend the boundaries between existing genres, while maintaining an involvement with such fields as contemporary dance and traditional performing arts. The core members are director Daisuke Muto and producer Keiichi Hayashi.
