The Kanagawa Performing Arts Association, a public interest corporation, began in 1958 when nine dancers active in Kanagawa gathered and held a joint dance performance. At present, the number of members has exceeded 250, and we are working to get even more people familiar with artistic dance.
Among the various performance activities including the competition, the one that attracts attention is the "Red Brick Dance Art" held at Yokohama Red Brick Building No. 1.

* From Nakamori Morimoto's work "Oden and Dance"

This year's 10th performance, with the aim of training young dancers and choreographers, will be attended by 14 groups. In a unique space where the audience's reaction can be felt directly, each person performs a unique dance.

We visited a rehearsal before the actual performance on Saturday, June 8 and asked up-and-coming dancers about their thoughts on dance.

It is Tomomi Fujii who has been dancing since childhood because of her mother, who is a dancer, and dances gracefully by taking over the space. This time, I will dance my new choreography “Drawing the Sky”. "alt =" "width =" 1600 "height =" 1068 "/>
"I feel that the stage of red brick is a unique space where you can feel the ship anchored outside, the sky and the sea that continues forever. I choreograph according to the image thought out with my head, this time Was created with the image of the sky. It's up to you to see how you feel, but I'd be glad if you could see some image of my dance and feel somewhere. ''

Yuko Ishihara and Yuya Yoshizaki appear as the top batters in the second half. Both are up-and-coming dancers who played an active part in the dance troupe “Noism” based in Ryutopia (Niigata Citizens Arts Center). This time I will be participating in a new work by U.M.

The idea that Ishihara put on his mask was something Yoshizaki-san came up with the night before the rehearsal.
"The white mask reminds me of an" innocent presence. "In the wake of an accident in which an unprotected young life is suddenly taken away, there is something that springs up inside me. Wearing a mask and adding anonymity I thought that it would be a work that many people could sympathize with. ''

"It's interesting that the person who saw the work felt that I didn't intend it and said," I looked like this. "Because it is communicating with customers through the work, as a choreographer, I am attracted to that.
I don't think there's anything wrong with contemporary dance. What I felt was a "correct answer" for that person. It is natural that the impression changes depending on the physical condition and mood at that time. I just want to see the stage and accept what I felt without thinking anything. ''

"UMU" rehearsal scenery is released quickly!
