i-Dance Japan
International Contact Improvisation Festival

In the Autumn,
7 days
Residential Dance Festival.

Dance fully & Play fully
with some of the best teachers and exceptional performers !
We have plenty of food and a lovely place to stay.

2019 seems to be a year of change in the historical flow.
Well, is change something that you make?
or is it something which happens anyway?

Yes, the theme of this year is “Change”.
During contact improvisation, or in daily life situations, or even at a turning point of our lives, changes happen all the time.
So we watch the change,
catch the timing of a change,
and find the best response to the change.

The nature in Jisso at the very north of Kagoshima will inspire you to tap into art-filled unordinary experiences. you are warmly welcomed to immerse yourself in the performance, Workshops, Improvisation Jams, gatherings or taking part in the showing while enjoying the traditional Japanese experience of Onsen (Hot springs), fresh and delicious food, taking walks in nature !
