“SPACE DEVELOPMENT and SPACE TUBE”
Director of New Enterprise Promotion Department, Japan Aerospace Enploration Agency (JAXA)
“An era came, anyone can go to space. Space travel will begin, if we pay the money even if we are not an astronaut we will be able to go to space. The International Space Station has made it possible for the humans to live in space for a long time. The inside of Space Station is zero gravity. What kind of pictures we can creat in this space? What kind of entertainments, games and arts in the zero gravity space will be? Thinking a lot makes us excited. But, it is difficult for us to actually experience zero gravity on the earth.
Although it is not zero gravity in SPACE TUBE, it is a very unstable space, it is difficult to balance and support the body at the beginning, but if we get accustomed we can move comfortably and freely. I guess it is exactly the same as an astronaut going to space and gradually moving the body freely in a zero gravity space.In other words, through experiencing SPACE TUBE, it is possible to experience pseudo-nearly zero gravity different from the ground. I expect many people to experience SPACE TUBE and find the way to move the body with a new feeling. Because this new experience leads to the humans adapting to life in space and developing the advance into space.”
“SPACE DANCE in the TUBE, EXHIBITION + KIDS SPACE DANCE + SPACE DANCE WORKSHOP & PERFORMANCE + PHOTO GALLERY” is a new communication with our whole body. We think that this project is very useful as “Social Design with 6 themes of Education, Health, Welfare, Art & Science, Environment, and Universe“. Its purpose is the getting an awareness about the body, particularly the familiar relationship between the body and the space. This awareness with its enough reality is needed as the essential element for the daily life in our information society.
Now we are planning to hold “SPACE DANCE in the TUBE” as 7 days program in the world for the general public, children, student, office worker, housewife, elderly people, handicapped people at museums, science museums, theatres, libraries, universities, schools, welfare facilities and so on.
– Development of a New Scientific Sense –
Now we have a serious crisis that threaten our existence. In our continuous search for convenience and comfort in today’s information society, we began to lose our sense of raw reality, our kinetic sense, and our physical sensations. As one characteristic phenomenon, we have a difficult social condition where we can’t judge the difference exactly between the real image and the virtual image.
Then, for children and adult, “Space Dance in the Tube” stimulate their bodies directly, and they can recognize themselves as the real existence with the body and awaken the original plentiful physical sensations as the humans. Soon they can develop “New Scientific Sense“, they need this sense for their daily life.

“SPACE DANCE in the TUBE is an important and unique project. Not only is it interesting from the creative point of view giving Uganda artists an opportunity to enhance their contemporary dance skills to better compete internationally, but it is also a useful tool for working in areas formerly revaged by conflict. Space Dance could be a constructive technique working with rehabilitating children associated with armed conflict and vulnerable youths orphaned by war”.
