IDN (International Dance Network) is a cultural project introducing various Japanese performing arts from contemporary, butoh to street dance abroad. The IDN took place in 2014 and it will be held again for four days from September 29 this year. In cooperation with Dance New Air, the IDN will invite a theater director, a festival producer, a dancer and a choreographer in the forefront of the world dance scene to Tokyo. The overseas guests will attend our daily interactive sessions including a forum, a lunch meeting, a networking reception, visiting a dance studio, and watching performances. The IDN is a right platform for both Japanese dancers and overseas guests to break out world dance scene. The showcase and the forum will be opened to the public this year.
