Strange Kinoko Dance Co. presents “Kinoko Room: la la la”

posted September 9, 2017
"Kinoko Room: la la la", a rather unique title is given to this performance. Try guess how "a room for XX" and "la la la" could help you imagine the content of the performance. The performance will be presented in the compact space at Matsudai Nohbutai Gallery - with talk show so bring your friends and family to enjoy the occasion.
"The Strange Dance Company" has been a tutor for dance class at NUNAGAWA Campus since 2015 and bringing uniqe and fun experiences to participants.
Check out "Tana-Dance" which they created by taking an inspiration from terraced rice field (tanada) of Echigo-Tsumari!
The ticket holder to the performance will be given an access to a special exhibition, "Drawing Matsudai, Shintaro Miyake". The artist will be running an open studio so make sure you will spare some time for the exhibition, too.
