What we do

Dance ga mitai! 22 - The Constitution of Japan

  • Organization : “DANCE GA MITAI!” Executive Committee
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Dance


Since it came into effect in 1947, the Constitution of Japan has been held up as the foundation of the state. In addition to the willingness shown by the present administration towards amendment of the Constitution, the recent situation with coronavirus has led to more people reconsidering the meaning of the Constitution. For this project six pieces were performed which confront the words of the Constitution through the medium of dance.
Along with the repeat performance of two award-winning works from sister project, the dance competition Newcomer series 18, in all eight pieces will be performed during the event.

Participating groups: Mari Fukutome x Aokid, Von・no’s, Risa Yada, Mizuki Taka, Yukio Suzuki, Ryohei Kondo, Baraba Okuyama, Akira Kasai
