Performer Yoji, Tokyo

_0031_jpn-011-performer_yojiA man of journeys. Yoji’s art expresses a unique message of “Love, dream & inspiring” built from his worldwide journey of exploration. Leaving Japan for China at age 20, he set out on a land-only trek taking in Tibet, Nepal and India, moving west and up into Europe, then circling down to arrive in Africa. Ghana’s peoples inspired him to express himself through performance. Hitchhiking back to Europe, he enrolled to learn traditional Italian theater, meeting his life-mentor master. From these myriad experiences, he combines genres spanning story, mask, mime, improvisation, and dance, bringing to everything his spirit of endless experimentation. “Worlds Meet” in Japan: don’t you feel that our new journey together has just begun?
