Kinosaki no Saki

Mika Kurosawa & Dancers

Mika Kurosawa & Dancers formed in 1985 and since then have been experimenting in dance, focusing not only on technique, but also on “the essence of dance” and “the dancing body”. They`ve also been pursuing insight into communication between the audience and “expressing with the body”. With an age gap of more than 40 years, the discord between the judgement and speed of the diverse group members is an attraction.

The legendary author, Naoya Shiga, as well as authors of the Shirakabaha, and many more, visited the springs of Kinosaki. There, they experienced the 7 hot springs, lively hot spring district full of delicacies like crab, and the beauty of the surrounding nature, such as Maruyama River and Genbudō, which is said to have formed over 160,000 years ago due to volcanic activity. Now, artists have taken the place of writers who came to relax their bodies and minds and to arouse their imaginations.
