紺夜 -KOOYA-

About “KOOYA”

2018年に始まった『紺夜(KOOYA)』は、「浅草発・世界行き」をコンセプトに、画家・小林舞香が総合プロデューサーとして自身の世界観を平面から立体、静から動、局所から全域へと押し拡げ、開放していくプロジェクトです。昨年の夏、ダンスパフォーマンスショー「春夢共鏡」を皮切りに、ロンドンHYPER JAPAN、花魁世界を現代の国際交流に開放するコンテンポラリーパフォーマンス「世界花魁道中」と全方位的にベクトルを広げており、わずか一年後の今夏にはフランスのJapanExpoへの参加や、パリの重要文化財として著名な《Aux Belles Poules》での日本人初の単独公演を実施するなど着実に実績を積んでいます。2019年11月、ASEANサミット開催中のタイにおいてLhong1919にて、在タイ大使館関係者を招いての公演を行い、日泰における重要な国際交流の実績を納めました。

Based on the concept: “From Asakusa to the World,” KOOYA is produced by Maika Kobayashi, an artist-painter, with the aim of sharing her creative worldview with the world. The project has started with a whirlwind of success in the last year with a range of projects.

To further deepen our relations with Europe, we will be exhibiting at Japan Expo in Paris this July. At Japan Expo, in addition to performing daily performance shows on the stage, during this event, we plan to hold a cultural exchange event in the center of Paris inviting French companies and celebrities. At this exchange event, we will introduce activities and products of Japanese NGOs and companies that support KOOYA, acting as a bridge between the cultures and economies of Japan and Europe.
