【「Dance ga mitai!」Executive Committee】
The Dance ga mitai! Executive Committee was newly launched by former members of the small theater “die pratze” (which closed its doors in 2012), together with performers and critics who were involved in die pratze’s festival “Dance ga mitai!” They continue to carry out planning and production centering on the Dance ga mitai! project. Its sister project, the competition “Dance ga mitai! Newcomer Series,” has been held 15 times as of 2017 and has become a gateway to success for up and coming dancers. The group’s current representative is Keiichi Hayashi, who took over the post from Jiro Yoshimura in July 2012.
