Company's Mission

Movement + Humanity = FUKUDANCE

Most people consider home as a place of great comfort and sanctuary. There are choices you make with the interior that provide familiarity and warmth, such as the color of curtains, furniture, artwork and even items inside of the refrigerator. You do this because it gives you comfort. You do this because you subconsciously know it acts as a shield against the unpredictability and lurking chaos of the outside world.

Fukudance creates work from a belief in the necessity of live performance and the experience of art to convey humanity. It is the company’s mission to nurture the artistic vision of director Junichi Fukuda: “None is the same, and everyone has right to express truthfully.”  Fukudance aims to build and reach a wide audience through virtuosic, unique collaborations and engaging performances.

Recent Works

You are not Yours

"You Are Not Yours" explores the hypothetical space where the dancers become the marionette, imaginary strings connected to the dancer's head, back and other possible body parts manipulating the dancer's body. It is the movement based exploration that stimulates the audience's mind by abstractly unraveling the contradiction of the reality of hierarchical society.
 

Eclosion

Abstractly interpreted about eclosion (metamorphosis in French), meaning the life stage of some insects undergoing transformation. Hands are the symbols of freedom, growth, and transformation. Movements without hands metaphors something incomplete, restricted or something in process to become complete. How they (or we) struggle to transform. Discoveries, challenges during the transformation.  

Do You Hear Me?

Inspired by Beethoven's struggle after he became completely deaf.  Feeling sound from vibrations and metronomes.  
     

Press

...the evening’s chief pleasure...Fukuda knew exactly what he was doing here: creating a work of easeful harmony...bringing to mind freedom and flight…in this altogether pleasing work. The real credit was due to Fukuda’s modest, tasteful proposal.   -March 8, 2014 by  Sarah Kaufman
