What is SPACE DANCE PROJECT?
“SPACE DANCE PROJECT” is a project pursuing a new dance expression, as well as a project to create a design after a dance with the concept of “DANCE & DESIGN“.
In our modern world where we advance into the Space Era and progress as an extreme Information Society, it is inevitable that the “Physical Experience” will be lack in both the adults world and the children’s world, so we think that at the various aspects a “New Experiment and New Design based on Body” will be needed. And we plan to open “SPACE MUSEUM” to promote these experiences and designs.
We started to create several contents for “SPACE MUSEUM” and we will present its results at “SD-School“, “SD-Museum“, and at other networks. Then we will hold “SPACE DANCE DESIGN PRESENTATION 2020” in Tokyo on June and after this event we will begin the opening campaign for “SPACE MUSEUM” in earnest.

“GPS, meteorological satellite, broadcasting satellite · · ·. For us who live in the ocean of countless information, opportunities to conscious of the workings of sensibility directly knowing the environment in the body are rapidly decreasing, and opportunities to feel conscious of the work of sensitivity to human beings becomes precious as much There. The experience of self-awareness of the world with Space Tube and the attempt to express it through the whole body must be an adventure to revive the sensitivity that is buried under consciousness and to know the new world that can be shared by the group. I would like to encourage many of you to experience Space Tube.”
On 2013-2018 we hold SPACE DANCE PROJECT at several museums, science museums, theaters, commercial facilities, universities, primary schools, and kinder gardens in inside and outside, and almost 400,000 adults and kids come to this project and enjoyed it.
