Takarabune: Awa Odori performance and workshop

Umrath Lounge

Takarabune is a creative dance company of Awa Odori, one of the most well-known Japanese traditional dances with 450 years of history. They push the limits of this venerable traditional art: their signature dance style is so aggressive and vigorous that it has been characterized as ‘dance beyond Awa Odori’. Their performances at a number of Awa Odori events held in Tokyo have generated growing interests among a variety of media, and the group has gained a reputation as the hottest Awa Odori group (ren) in Japan.
