This is the base space for Keiko Takeya C.D.C. (now Dance 01), a dance company founded in 1983 by Keiko Takeya, one of Japan’s leading contemporary dancers, and since 2015 it has been operating as a blue theater with facilities for small-scale performances in addition to a regular dance studio.

Dance 01 is known for the “Dance East Wind,” a large-scale joint project with Asian countries (Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, India) that continued from 1993 to 2003. The three works created through this project have been performed in Japan, various co-host countries, as well as in Europe (Germany and Spain).

Dance 01 is currently under the artistic direction of Mikiya Takeda, who has a background in butoh dance, and is engaged in the free creation of works and active exchange activities both in Japan and overseas.
