UMIRA's main program is the workshops named "Shadow Play Odyssey™" and "Shadow Dance Odyssey™". We offer them according
to various needs for both children and adults. Please feel free to contact for detailed contents and customization according to your needs.
Each Participants face a small screen frame and tastes the time of light and shadow while moving candle flames with their own hands behind it. Characteristically, you will particularly use five natural elements (fire, earth, air, water, plant) as the shadow play material. It brings you to reach the unconscious world, which is dreamy and different from the daily state but by using everyday material. The workshop aims to awaken the source of human primitive sensibility, and raise awareness of the blessings of nature both inside and outside of a participant.

Let's change the invisible light and shadow into dance. Let's make the moment of discovering yourself through light and shadow as a part of everyday life. This is a meditative movement work that has been influenced by the methods such as Butoh, Body-Mind Centering®, Process Work and Authentic Movement. While valuing the physical self-awareness, the workshop invites participants for example to absorb light into the body & mind or focus on shadows according to each person's condition on the day.
