What we do

Terra Co. Dance Research Program

  • Organization : Craneo Inc.
  • Section : Project for improvements in the creative environment
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Dance


This is a training program that has been ongoing since 2018.
This year, the program focused on research by ten participants on their respective themes, featuring two interim presentations and a final presentation. To support the participants’ research activities, four instructors (Shintaro Hirahara, Hokuto Kodama, Yuma Ochi, and Ayako Takahashi) gave ten lectures and provided feedback during the presentations. Craneo attempted a new training program format with the objective of encouraging participants to set their own goals and engage in voluntary exploration.
