Yo Nakamura


Yo Nakamura first entered into the world of contemporary dance through the modern dance club of Waseda University. In 2009, she started dancing in choreographies by Shuji Onodera and Ryohei Kondo, in addition to working as their assistant. Nakamura has performed in Onodera’s “Toritsukare Otoko,” Kondo’s duet “A Love Vacation” presented at Dance Triennale Tokyo 2012, and pieces by Ko Murobushi.

Since 2010, Nakamura has been choreographing her own repertoire. With a dancing body as her medium, she mobilizes all the elements of a performance, including music, words, narratives, props, and relationships, in order to create pieces that are warm and sharp at the same time. Nakamura has also developed a workshop program called “Pop Song Switches,” in which the participants are instructed to dance as characters from popular songs, and implements it in various parts of Japan.

In addition to working in the field of contemporary dance, she has provided stage direction and choreography for a theater production at New National Theater, Tokyo. Nakamura is also active in the media, having performed in TV commercials and Avril Lavigne’s music video “Hello Kitty.”

For 2014, she is invited to present at Sibiu International Theater Festival in Romania in June, National Theatre Wales’ residency program “Wales Lab” in August, and Tokyo / Soul Duo Dance Fes 2014 in November and December.


Nakamura is the winner of the NEXTREAM21 Dance Competition’s Jury Award, the First Session Best Award, and the Jury Prize and the Sibiu International Theater Festival Prize at Yokohama Dance Collection EX 2013.
