​世界に誇れる日本の伝統芸能である「日本舞踊」の継承・普及活動に積極的に取り組むNPO法人で、国内外の第一線で活躍する日本舞踊家が流派を超えて集結し、身近に楽しめる舞台の企画・公演をしています。

21世紀の日本舞踊の在り方を考え、同時代に生きる人々との新たな出逢いと

舞台芸術の創造の場を求めて「集団 日本舞踊21」と名付けられました。

Nihon Buyo 21 is a NPO that aims at finding positive initiatives to work for the transmission and spread of the traditional performing art of Japanese classical dance. It includes performers regardless of school of dance who are at the top of their profession and active both inside and outside of Japan. Activities include the production of performances and other projects that can allow contemporary to experience Japanese classical dance close up.

 

We named the group “Nihon Buyo 21” to reflect our goal of thinking of what Japanese classical dance should be in the 21st century and to create new places of creative work so that the people of today can encounter this art form.

活動目的

日本の代表的な伝統芸能の一つである「日本舞踊」の将来を考え、次世代への浸透を図る継承・普及活動と、伝統芸能である日本舞踊を広く内外に知って頂く為の活動を行うことにより、日本の文化の発展や国際交流に寄与することを目的としています。

Aim of the Group’s Activities

Japanese classical dance is an important form of traditional performing art and this group has been formed to think about the future of Nihon Buyo. Through activities that will both help support the creation of professional performers and make opportunities for contact with top performers for the transmission of advanced performance skills and activities to make the younger generation aware of Japanese classical dance, both in Japan and abroad, this group will work for the development of Japanese culture and international interchange.

​沿革

1996年に任意団体として活動を開始し、2003年に特定非営利活動法人(NPO法人)となりました。

国内外の第一線で活躍する日本舞踊家に加え、舞台作家・照明家・美術家・研究者などの舞台芸術の専門家も同人として在籍し、舞台表現の総合的な在り方を追求した活動に取り組んでいます。

History of the Group

The group began in 1996 as a collection of like-minded individuals before being officially recognized as an NPO (Non Profit Organization) in 2003. In addition to top level Japanese classical dancers who are active both inside and outside of Japan, the group includes as members specialists in writing dance scenarios, lighting design, stage artistic designers, criticism and historical research, in order to make a comprehensive approach to the creation of expression on stage.

 

Also, in commemoration of the 15th anniversary of our start we have established an international division that will work to introduce Japanese classical dance to non-Japanese through such means as organizing workshops for non-Japanese both inside and outside of Japan for non-Japanese to experience classical Japanese dance and to have English language translations on our home page and in the programs for our performances.
