“Niku-no-uta (肉のうた)”

Emiko Agatsuma: Art director, Choreographer and performer

Dairakudakan studio ” Kochuten” in Tokyo: premier performance

Maison de la Culture du Japon à Paris


“Niku-no-uta” was based on my experience of the Great East Japan Earthquake, 2011. I also focused on the transmigration of the soul in this performance and connected them by the imagination of life and death. This piece was performed by the 10 dancers and they were all women. It went well and repeated in Paris. All stages were sold out. I got an award from Japan Dance Critics Association as the Best Young Artist 2015
