Yokohama National Univ. Modern Dance Club
The club was founded in 1983. We won the Encouragement Award at the 31st All Japan Dance Festival Kobe. It was the first time in the history of the dance club to win the award for four consecutive years. In addition, we produced our works at presentations by the Kanto Student Dance Alliance Performance and our own performance. There are many graduates who work widely, including Ryohei Kondo who president of Condors. We’re looking for independent world view, and we are engaged in creative activities every day.
<Namstrops> was formed in 2006. The company name is the backward reading of sportsman. The unique creative style of ‘the physical education of modern art’ (named Takahashi Rumiko) drew the attention of overseas festivals as well. Up until then, Asian countries and cities had originally presented their creations in Estonia, Romania, Germany, and other European countries (11 countries, 35 cities). Also, domestically, it expanded on experiential performance activities that only this company could do, attempting to exhibit ‘physical education’ (the idea of nurturing the body) in art museums throughout the country, such as the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Towada Art Center in the north, and Kirishima Open Air Museum in the south. They were selected the finalists in the Yokohama Dance Collection in 2008, 2011 and 2012.
