Chieko Kojima (Kodo) “Nishimonai”




All in one!


More about…

Chieko Kojima first encountered Japanese folk dancing when she moved to Sado to join Sado no Kuni Ondekoza in 1976, and in 1981 she went on to become one of the founding members of Kodo. She is noted for her original style of dance in Kodo’s taiko-based performances, exemplified by her vivid portrayal of the goddess Uzume in Tamasaburo Bando’s 2006 Amaterasu. She also seeks new expressions in the female song-and-dance trio Hanayui and has an active solo career that is perhaps best characterized in her ongoing project, Yukiai.
