I danced “Akita no Gyoji” at an event for a mural by Tsuguharu Leonard Fujita at a performance sponsored by Akita Museum of Art at Hie Hachiman Shrine in October 2015. It depicts the season and festivals of Akita. More than 400 people came to enjoy the performance. Though it was my very first time to express a painting by dance, I felt a good response and big possibility after the performance. I’d like to study and absorb a lot of folk performing arts and culture of Akita including “Akita no Gyoji”, “Akita Ondo”(teodori dancing) and “Namahage Daiko”(drum playing). I will perform them mixed with my own dance to create a new style. I hope European people will watch my performance. To express folk performing arts of Akita/Japan, I’m thinking to have my base in The Netherlands and play an active part in Europe.
