Dance Group UNIK: Performances and workshops in Tohoku

UNIK Sendai city, Rifu-cho, Higashine city, Iwaki city, Miharu-cho, Katsuraomura, Tomioka-cho, Japan

With the cooperation of Flanders Center (Osaka), the dance group "UNIK" is coming to Japan from Belgium where contemporary dance is very popular. UNIK aims to make contemporary dance accessible to the masses by introducing their interactive dance performance in a unique way.
This time, they are going to visit schools in Tohoku, where it was suffered enormous damage by the massive earthquake on March 11th, in order to have workshops and performance with local school children and dance instructors.
This program has been arranged and executed by people in the dance field, teachers and other local people who were involved with this project in each city. Besides UNIK members, Japanese dancers and audiences are going to participate in the performance called "U-Party", which is created with the audiences and all people who are there. Through this program, we hope that many people will enjoy dancing and discover how contemporary dance is interesting, and it will enrich their daily life in the long run.
