Nagoya - ‘Confusion Inclusion’

In late 2015 the directors of Popai Inc, Miki and Hikaru Yamaguchi travelled from Nagoya to Mackay to begin negotiations with Crossroad Arts on a new collaboration. The dance/film project was called ‘Confusion Inclusion’.

By November 2016 Popai had obtained funding to pay for 3 artists from Crossroad Arts to travel to Nagoya to work for 1 week with Popai participants and staff.

The public performance of Confusion Inclusion in Nagoya on Nov 26 2016 was such a success that Popai were able to leverage further funding from Japanese philanthropic organisations to bring the work to Brisbane Australia in 2018.
