    DANCE TRUCK TOKYO


    The Japan Dance Truck Association is announcing its next project, “DANCE TRUCK TOKYO,” which will take place in 15 locations throughout the Tokyo Metropolis, including the Tama district, the outlying islands, and the wards of central Tokyo.

    “DANCE TRUCK TOKYO” has been selected by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Arts Council Tokyo (of the Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture), to be a part of the “Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL Public Call for Project Proposals” (https://ttf-koubo.jp/en/). This festival will be celebrating cultural activities in all regions of the metropolis, starting from the fall of 2019 and continuing for a year.

    These performances are being developed by innovative artists from a range of disciplines, under the curation of three of Japan’s most noted contemporary dancers: Yoko Higashino, Tsuyoshi Shirai, and Yukio Suzuki. Each event will be unique and site-specific, incorporating the particular landscape and personality of the particular location. (Specific details of each event will be updated on the upcoming project page)
