DANCE DANCE ASIA―Crossing the Movements in Hanoi & Bangkok 2019 / Asia in Resonance 2019

Vietnam, Thailand

Collaborative street dance performance between Southeast Asia and Japan

The Japan Foundation Asia Center and PARCO Co., Ltd. are pleased to announce that DANCE DANCE ASIA―Crossing the Movements 2019 is coming to Hanoi and Bangkok this autumn! After the huge success of the Tokyo show in July, a total of 21 street dancers and musicians from Japan and all over Southeast Asia (Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, The Philippines, and Vietnam) will gather again to bring you a new experience of street dance performance with extraordinary techniques, expressions and music.

DANCE DANCE ASIA is an international dance collaboration project featuring world's leading street dancers and up-and-coming creators from Asia. Launched in 2014 by the Japan Foundation Asia Center and PARCO Co., Ltd., DANCE DANCE ASIA has been encouraging exchange of ideas and inspirations across borders through co-production of stage performances.

In this October and November, three pieces directed by 3T from Vietnam, Nikii from Thailand, and kEnkEn from Japan, all of which gained great reputation at the Tokyo show, will be re-staged in Hanoi and Bangkok. The tour is designed as one of the main programs of 'Asia in Resonance 2019', a series of cultural events in which the Japan Foundation Asia Center introduces its five years of activities.

Do not miss the exceptional performances by the spirited street dancers from Asia, bringing about innovative "movements" in the latest dance scene in the world!

Asia in Resonance 2019

The Japan Foundation Asia Center is holding the "Asia in Resonance 2019", a series of events introducing its various cultural exchange programs between Japan and Southeast Asia. The broad range of special events includes cross-border productions of stage performances and films, an international friendly soccer match in which the ASIAN ELEVEN team of selected Southeast-Asian players will play against a team from Japan, and a "NIHONGO Partners" symposium. These events are an opportunity to enjoy the resonance created by the strengthened ties between Southeast Asia and Japan. And as well as being an opportunity to look back at the achievements of mutual cultural exchange which the Asia Center have been holding over the last five years, this festival will provide a springboard to further deepen ties between Japan and Southeast Asia.
"Asia in Resonance 2019" is scheduled to also be held in Southeast Asia.

This is the certified project of beyond 2020 program.
