Since 2018, Noism Company Niigata has been holding the “Body Workshop for the visually impaired”. Touching the bodies of professional dancers and moving together with the music, it is a valuable opportunity not only for visually impaired people but also for dancers themselves to feel and enjoy a new world with each other.
The workshop begins with a visually impaired person and a dancer putting their hands together one-on-one. Hearts resonate from the touch of hands, and your senses, hearing, and presence are fully opened… before you know it, you’ll find yourself dancing to the music with someone.
We will proceed in an easy way for first-timers to participate, so please feel free to join us. We look forward to seeing you all at RYUTIOUA.
