【Yuki Onuma】
Graduated from Nihon University College of Art and joined the silver tent theater company “Kukyocho,” led by Santa Yamakawa. After leaving Kukyocho, Onuma studied with Tatsumi Hijikata, the founder of Butoh, at Asbestos Hall. She then discovered flamenco, and studied with Yuko Sato. In 1992 she moved to Spain, where she continued her training for two and a half years. Back in Japan, Onuma founded eStudio Breña in Nakano, Tokyo, in 1999. She frequently invites to Japan celebrated gypsy flamenco performers from Jerez de la Frontera. One of her most well known creations is “Espontanea,” a flamenco stage production filled with spontaneity. In 2016 Onuma was awarded the Newcomer’s Prize in the Agency for Cultural Affairs Arts Festival (Dance Division) for “Espontanea IV.”
