For the inaugural event at Morishita Studio on May 20th, choreographer and dancer Akiko Kitamura (ACC 2015) will speak about the ACC fellowship program she undertook in summer 2015, when she travelled to Cambodia, Myanmar, and Manipur to research the traditional music, dance, and martial arts of each country.
