We are excited to share our collaborative project, oFuro.
The name comes from traditional Japanese bath culture, where strangers become family by spending time together in a community space. In project oFuro we spend one week creating a new piece for your community, which is then performed at a local theatre as the opening act for OURO.
Working together with youth and artists all over the world, we use dance and collaboration to connect with people of all ages.
