  • Organization : S20 LLC.
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Dance


This project comprises the production and performance of dance works using AR (Augmented Reality), as well as preparatory workshops for these. As technology develops, incorporating it into the artist’s own creation necessitates not only a basic concept for the work but also the knowledge, skills and ideas to connect the work with technology, something which requires time and effort. In this project, organizers focus on the AR aspect of technology, creating opportunities and time to not only present works but to deepen understanding of technology and to develop creative ideas. In this way the aim of the project is to act as a catalyst for connecting technology-driven art and dance and stimulate more active collaboration between the two fields.
