Program Detail 2011-2012

“Japan- Finland Co-production Program” is a collaborative planning and creative project between Japan`s JCDN and Finland`s ZODIAK.
Dance creation and performance tours will be actualized in Japan and Finland to supplement and broaden both country`s dance communities on an international scale.

Finnish artist Ervi Sirén will reside in Japan and Kosei Sakamoto in Finland, where they will each create a dance performance with that country`s artists.

Project Goal

With the goal of creating an international performing arts network throughout the country, JCDN is increasing the number of locations for the "International Artist in Residency" program, in which domestic and foreign dance artists can create new works.

For this purpose both countries` organizers create the necessary environment and methods.
