Following three residencies (from May to August 2013) in Marseille, Monaco et Tokyo, JAPON Dance Project presented Le Paradis des fourmis at ESDC Rosella Hightower in Cannes on 24 and 25 August 2013: a Production-Manifesto by the five founders in two acts that marks a very important step in the evolution of their project, and that in some ways anticipates the major production they will present in Tokyo on 30 and 31 August 2014.
