Tanaka Min / PROFILE

In 1974, Tanaka embarked on his own journey of dancing and developed an alternative style of dance called “hyper-dance”. He made an international debut in 1978 at the Louvre museum. In the 1980s, he conducted many avant-garde performances in the former communist territories, resulting in highly regarded international claims. In 1985 he moved to live in a village in a mountain and has continued dance practice based upon agriculture to the present time. Since his first appearance in a film in 2002, he has participated in films both in Japan and abroad. In 2022, Min Tanaka’s documentary film “Dance with No Name” (directed by Isshin Inudo) had a nationwide roadshow.
