Led by acclaimed artistic director Akaji Maro, Dairakudakan (aka ‘Great Camel Battleship’) is one of Japan’s most legendary butoh dance troupes. The modern dance ensemble calls Kichijoji home, with its cosy Kochuten rehearsal and performance space located a short walk from the central exit. The group is noted for enabling younger members to develop and stage original works, the majority of which are presented on a semi-regular basis. For those wanting to get their freak on, butoh classes are also offered – see website for schedules and further details.
