"Dance Project New York''

Dear friends

As you know, my country is in a big chaos and really terrible situations because of the recent earthquake/tsunami tragedy. While my family is safe fortunately, it is causing a lot of mess and a lot of people are suffering, and i'm very much in pain just thinking of them.

For the past 4 years, I have run a project called "Dance Project New York'' which consists with japanese professional dancers in NYC, providing performances and workshops for japanese dancers in both Japan and the U.S. Through this project, I'm organizing "DANCE for JAPAN" a benefit Dance Concert for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief to raise money for this tragedy. The concert will be mainly performed by Japanese dancers with American dancers in NYC that includes both professionals and students in modern and ballet. We will donate 100 percent of the tickets sales to Japan Society.

As a Japanese artist living in the U.S, I strongly feel that it's important to organize this concert and to raise money to help people in Japan.

It would be very much appreciated if you could support me and spread your words to more people about this concert.

"HUMAN STORY" Second time!!

Our conception in this collaboration was for dancers to perform based on images from the paintings. We choose the word perform rather than dance as the movement does not have a fixed particular rhythm. it is a movement of human personal expression.
Our goal is to create a performance that queries the connection and the relationship between one person and another person.
we will express images through these paintings and contemporary dance.
