Original Cultures: between Japan, Italy and the UK

"Original Cultures is a non-profit project that aims to create, facilitate and promote cultural exchange between European countries and Japan through the medium of modern performing arts in new and unique ways. The idea for the project came to Laurent Fintoni shortly before leaving Japan in June 2008, following many discussions with Hiroki Sakaida (owner of the POP GROUP label) and Japanese artist Goth Trad. Upon his return to Europe in September that year he put the wheels in motion to turn the idea into reality and create a non-profit project that would allow cultural exchange between Japan, Italy and the UK at the level of modern performing arts, starting with music and visual arts. With the help of Cristian Adamo, Yassin Hannat and Alessandro Micheli, both based in Bologna, the Original Cultures project was ‘born’ in November 2008."

Here is an interesting video edit of what happened during day 3 of the Original Cultures pilot featuring footage of the visual arts workshop, sound-check and the seminar at the Modo Infoshop. The first event is planned to take place in the UK in November 2009.
