Mapping, Observing, and Building Network between Platforms for Young Choreographers

Observing, Mapping, and Networking Among Platforms for Young choreographers has been planned since 2017 after observing TPAM as well as the Yokohama Dance Collection 2017. This project aims to navigate how platforms, festivals, and spaces have been a part of the emerging choreographer’s journeys. On the other side, it questions how emerging choreographers navigate themselves in the middle of possibilities and challenges on the dance scene as well as responding to contexts, situations, systems, and environments that are always changing vis-a-vis their idealism and future imagination. This Japan case study will be a pilot project for the next research plan in other countries in Asia, especially Southeast Asia, at first. The physical outcome of this project will be processed as a compilation of essays that will be published as a book; meanwhile separate articles will also be published on ( ).
