What was Jomon dance like? “Jomon Dance & Jomon Concert” in front of Idojiri Archaeological Museum

The Yatsugatake area was very prosperous during the Jomon period, and many archeological sites have been discovered. There are many projects based on the Jomon period and Jomon culture.

In addition to seeing and hearing, there are also events that use the body to think about Jomon culture. This is the “Jomon Dance & Jomon Concert” held in Fujimi Town, Nagano Prefecture.

This event will be held in the open space in front of the Ijiri Archaeological Museum, where artifacts from the Ijiri site are displayed. Former dancers, filmmakers Ayumi Teida, who also collects the oral traditions of indigenous people from all over the world, and Takashi Komatsu, director of Idojiri Archeological Museum, appeared while thinking about the ancient rhythm. Enjoy creative dances and improvisations imagining dances from the Jomon period.

After enjoying dancing and music, head to the nearby forest for lunch. You can enjoy the surrounding nature with free participation. By the way, lunch is brought with you, but you can also order lunch in advance.

The event will be held on August 27. Why don’t you imagine, through dance, how people in the Jomon period enjoyed their lives?
