TAKAO KAWAGUCHI AND MANIPUR – A DANCE RENDEZVOUS

The event is going to be a workshop cum cultural exchange programme which will be mainly led by Takao Kawaguchi along with Surjit Nongmeikapam. As an expert for the workshop he will be helping the new generation dancers who are interested in contemporary dance form, and will give them his share of knowledge and expertise. This workshop will therefore help our youth in understanding contemporary dance in a better way and help them gain a new perspective into it. Through Takao K. our youth and the local artist here will be able to get a glimpse of contemporary dance in Japan. Apart from the workshop, there will be a session for cultural exchange at the later days of the event. During the cultural exchange, our local artists from Laihui Ensemble will come together with Takao K. and Surjit on a same platform where they will be able to share about their cultures. The cultural exchange session will also be serving as a platform for the local artist with Takao K. and Surjit to bring out their ideas and concepts from which they can create something new – a blend of both the cultures and ideas.


We are planning to select around 30-40 participants approximately. The selection will be done on certain criteria which will be laid put later during the time of publicity. We are also going to provide accommodation to those participants who are from outside Imphal area. There won’t be any charges applied for participating in the workshop. It is going to be free of cost as our main objective is to provide maximum exposure and knowledge to these younger generations.

Objective: - We are looking forward to be able to create a platform for our local artist to interact and work together in collaboration with Takao Kawaguchi. Through him we would like to give exposure of our art forms such as folk and classical apart from contemporary dance, to be introduced with the collaboration work of Takao K. and our local artist. For the younger generation of contemporary dance aspirers, this will serve as a medium through which they can understand the dance form in a better way and meaning.
