DANCE DANCE ASIA-Crossing the Movements

Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Philippines, Laos, Japan

"DANCE DANCE ASIA-Crossing the Movements" is a project that aims to encourage interaction and creative collaboration for stage performances among dance groups and dancers in Asia, with a focus on street dance. The project was launched in 2014 by the Japan Foundation Asia Center and PARCO Co., Ltd.

DANCE DANCE ASIA has organized performances and workshops by Japanese street-dance groups in seven Southeast Asian countries, and also presented multi-group performances by Southeast Asian and Japanese dance groups in Tokyo. In 2015 it collaborated internationally for the first time to showcase a stage street-dance performance, and in 2016, the third year of the project, it moved further toward realization of larger-scale collaborative endeavors.
