Gathering of Japanese ballet dancers with global presence

With a ballet population of over 400,000, Japan is now reckoned among the great ballet powers of the world, and many Japanese dancers are active at a global level, including those who placed first and second in the Prix de Lausanne international ballet competition. Under the artistic directorship of dancer Yasuyuki Endo, the Yokohama Ballet Festival held a gala performance featuring top Japanese dancers working both in Japan and overseas. Endo works as a dancer and choreographer in countries around the world, not least at European Capital of Culture Marseille in 2013, and in Yokohama performed one of his own pieces together with Mimoza Koike. Acclaimed for harnessing a distinctively Japanese sensibility and originality, and for his deep artistic proficiency, Endo achieved considerable results with this production, including its continuation next year.

 

Date:

17-19 Aug. 2015

Venue:

Kanagawa Kenmin Hall

 

Program:

“HANJYU” from Afternoon of a Faun

 Lithuanian, Japanese choirs linked by jiutamai

A performance in Lithuania of the traditional Japanese dance form jiutamai in 2012, the year following the Great East Japan Earthquake, led to three years of work towards this Japan visit by a Lithuanian girls choir. It is not difficult to imagine that the heartfelt sympathy of the Lithuanian people for the unprecedented devastation wrought by the earthquake is not unconnected with their own painful experiences during the long, cruel Soviet occupation of their country. The enthusiasm and commitment of Tokijo Hanasaki, who has long made strenuous efforts to introduce and popularize jiutamai around Europe, and not least in Lithuania, were factors in achieving this Japan visit by Lithuanian girls who embraced a strong attraction to Japan. The ties of friendship that developed through these exchanges will surely persist well into the future.

Date:

25-30 Jul. 2015

Artist:

Lithuanian Girls Choir ”UGNELE”

An infinite dialog, driven by haiku

The Japanese verse form haiku has long since transcended national borders and found favor throughout the world. This year poets and haiku composers from fourteen countries and regions gathered to share their pleasure in creating and savoring haiku in a variety of ways. Readings of work by the poets and haiku composers taking part were given in their native languages and with English translation. Participants also heard talks on haiku activity in such locations as the Arabic-speaking countries, Denmark, France, Mongolia and Vietnam, and from a female haiku composer a report of deep interest on how haiku are received by women in different countries. There was also active dialog on the poetic form in a wide range of approaches, including haiku and gogaku (classical Japanese court music), haiku and pictures, haiku and film and music, haiku and dance, rakugo (traditional Japanese storytelling) and haiku, and haiku and proverbs. Now that it has spread throughout the world, haiku is sure to go on to extend its infinite possibilities and join the hearts of people everywhere.

 Long history of exchange develops further on stage of European Capital of Culture 

Over two years in 2006-07 Kindai University twice conducted international workshops and experienced fruitful exchanges between its instructors and students and those of Ecole nationale superieure des arts visuels de La Cambre (ENSAV) in Brussels. Kindai put these experiences to advantage as part of Mons 2015 in a series of joint workshops over the course of the year together with the local ARTS2 Conservatoire royal de Mons.

In 2014 instructors from the two schools began discussions and visiting each other. In February 2015 students gathered at Kindai and in August at ARTS2 and engaged in production of work through two different workshops on the performing arts and the plastic arts. Discovering through communal living what they share in common and how they differ from each other, the students engaed with the shared theme of “how to overcome stereotypes about foreigners”. Ultimately in October five Kindai students traveled to Mons for live performances with local students of three pieces in puppetry theater, dance and drama, as well as song and drawing. For students of the two schools this program was a valuable opportunity rich in stimulus, suggestion and insight opening their eyes to the world.
