From Japan to Kelantan, Through Dance

A project by The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur and the National Academy of Arts Culture and Heritage is bringing together Japanese choreographer Un Yamada and Kelantanese traditional dance and music, to create a collaborative piece called “Blessings for Life”. We speak with Un and project coordinator and traditional dancer Zamzuriah Zahari, about finding points of connection between Japanese contemporary dance, butoh, and traditional Kelantanese artforms.
