“Yokohama Dance Collection” and “Seoul Dance Collection” — the two dance collections selected Japanese and Korean emerging choreographers to have them meet for the first time and work on a co-creation through a two-month residence in Seoul and Yokohama. Exchanging with another choreographer from a different background, understanding and studying the differences, learning from each other and with new points of view, they have presented a piece called Face to Face in Seoul and have been working toward this performance in Yokohama.
