Outline of projects

CONNELING STUDY is a project for the production of learning methods using performing arts as the educational materials. Based in Yamabuki Factory, the project activities are led by performing arts producer Akane Nakamura and workshop designer Takashi Usui.

The name “CONNELING” comes from the Japanese word that means “kneading clay.” It has the connotation of “connecting” performance and appreciation by “kneading” ideas, thoughts, and theater-viewing experience. This project is an attempt to breed new learning through the addition of activities before, after, and during the performance, and thereby to link performance and appreciation in a new configuration.
