13:00~14:30|テーマ1:「コンテンポラリーダンスの環境~ダンサー、メディア、プロデューサーの視点から」 13:00~14:30 | Theme 1: Environment of Contemporary Dance — from the Viewpoint of Dancers, Media and Producers


1990年前後からの四半世紀、バブル景気とその崩壊の時代の只中、失われた20年の舞台芸術を巡るトピックス。文化施策とメセナ活動による経済的支援の開始、全国主要都市に建設される創造型公共劇場が担うことになる地域の文化活動拠点としての責務、劇場法や文化芸術振興基本法を含む環境整備を巡る成果と課題。創造活動と評論やメディアとの関係性はどうだろうか、メディアの多様性はつくり手を支えるのだろうか? コンテンポラリーダンスを取り巻く環境がどの様に変化してきたのか、つくり手、メディア、制作者、それぞれの視点から振り返り未来への展望を試みる。

Panelists: Kazuyuki Kajiya (Facilitator), Akiko Kitamura (Guest), Sae Okami and Shinji Ono

We will discuss how performing arts have evolved over the last quarter century from 1990, and the time of bubble economy and the post-collapsed period, and the “lost 20 years” addressing topics such as the launch of financial assistance programs via cultural policies and mécénat activities, creative public theaters that will be built in major cities and thus will be responsible for local cultural activities, and the achievements and challenges of improving the environment for contemporary dance including Act on the Vitalization of Theaters and Halls and Basic Act for the Promotion of Culture and the Arts. What are the relationships between creation activities and critics or the media? Can diverse forms of media contribute to support creators? How has the contemporary dance environment been changed? We will reflect on this from the viewpoints of creators, media and producers and explore their respective prospects for the future.

14:45~16:15|テーマ2:「コンテンポラリーダンスの総括~ダンスの系譜と歴史」14:45~16:15 | Theme 2: General Overview of Contemporary Dance — Dance Genealogy and History



Panelists: Akira Amagasaki (Facilitator), Yuasa Ema (Guest), Maimi Sato and Shigeto Nuki

What is “contemporary dance”? Is it the name of one genre such as “postmodern dance” (USA) or “nouvelle danse” (France)? Or is it a convenient term used to refer to various forms that have tried after 1990? Do we share the same general idea of what it encompasses? Or is it just the expression of a particular sensibility these days? Is the meaning any different in Japan versus overseas? Representing a variety of standpoints, the panelists will outline their views on what “contemporary dance” is really about.

16:30~18:00|テーマ3:「コンテンポラリーダンスの現在と未来~クリエイティブ・カルチャーの中のダンス」16:30~18:00 | Theme 3: Now and the Future of Contemporary Dance – Dance in Creative Culture



Panelists: Ryoichi Enomoto (Facilitator), Mikuni Yanaihara (Guest), Eri Karatsu and Naoko Haga

Over 30 years has passed since the 1970s development of postmodern dance in the US, the 1980s rise of nouvelle danse in Europe, and the current age of contemporary dance. There is an inevitable need to study other genres to analyze what is happening now in contemporary dance. For example, Japanese contemporary art has changed its primary exhibition forum from the gallery to the biennials or triennials. Moreover, due to innovative changes in the art market outside of Japan, the Japanese art market still remains stagnant. The panelists will reexamine the world of dance creation to find out how the production of this art form can continue to survive.
