ofuro Performance Series

OURO Collective presents, ofuro, our youth initiative program. The name ofuro comes from traditional Japanese bath culture, where strangers become family by spending time together in a community space. We aim to bring project, oFuro to students and audiences worldwide.

ofuro performance/creation: we spend approximately one week creating a new work(s) for the community, which is then performed at a local theatre as the opening act for OURO. With ofuro, OURO will continue to work towards our goals: to build youth & community engagement, to provide an opportunity for aspiring dancers to connect with professional dancers, and to bring together various dance communities and the general public under one roof. The project will give the dancers experience amalgamating contemporary and street dance styles thus widening opportunities in their careers.

This video shows our first collaboration with Yarita Yu Ballet Japan, produced by the Japan National Ballet Cultivation Revival Association Representative.
