Their styles and contents vary, and many performers pursue their own way to express themselves. The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam has held various stage performances, including mime, contemporary dance, street dance, and non-verbal theater to introduce the diversity of dance and physical expressions in Japan without sticking to a specific genre.
