Choreographer Yuki Aoki started the dance group Sokerissa! with homeless people in 2005, in the search for a form of expression arising from the concept of “bodies living in the moment.” The group is now holding a performance tour of their brand of Tokyo street dance. With this tour, poor people without exposure to the arts bring dance to the general public, and each audience member is left to decide how much the performance is worth after watching. The aim was to establish a form of tipping-based compensation for performers by getting audience members to confront their individual values regarding money, according to their living conditions.


Yuki Aoki, Dancer / choreographer

Birth of August 4, 1968 I have been learning jazz dance in Tokyo since 1987 -1993 Theater company Sunflower Broadway Dance Center After a theme park, Sanrio Puroland dancer 1991-1994 and talent back dancer work 1995-2000 Collaboration with Big Issue Foundation 2005 – Present.
We started the dance group “Newcomer H Sokerissa!” Dances are choreographed by words and from memories that can only be created by the individual. We have attracted alot of attention as an arts group and have earned a reputation as a social reintegration program for socially vulnerable people.
In recent years, participated in Rio Olympic program, Celebration “With one voice”. Konica Minolta Social Design Award 2016, Grand Prize Winner. I propose “anyone can dance” and aim for the revival of purely dynamic human beings (power to live).
