What we do

SCOOL Performance Series 2017

  • Organization : Azumabashi Dance Crossing Executive Committee
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Interdisciplinary


For this series ongoing since 2013, organizers have planned and implemented cutting-edge and alternative performance in various genres like dance, theater, music and art, introduced cross-disciplinary artistic expression falling outside of any one genre, and staged bold creative mixes designed to shake up existing genre frameworks. Already this year, the series has featured Kamome Machine’s “OREGAYO” (written and directed by Yuta Hagiwara), and “Kuru, Kitto Kuru” choreographed by Daisuke Muto. In the pipeline are performances by baby tooth (Megumi Kamimura, Michiko Tsuda), Mari Fukutome, Ami Yoshida and Yoshio Ootani, and Tetsuya Umeda.


【Azumabashi Dance Crossing Executive Committee】
The committee was formed with the aim of implementing Azumabashi Dance Crossing, described by organizers as a dance-focused crossover festival for physical art performance in different genres. The festival was held from 2004 until 2013 but is currently suspended.
In 2010 the committee opened art space SNAC in Kiyosumi-shirakawa, for which it plans and runs events. SNAC is intended as a base for routine, sustained experimentation with the same goals as Azumabashi Dance Crossing. SNAC relocated to Mitaka in April 2017. The committee started up the SCOOL series.
