2023年，Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels支持Institut Français du Japon于2023年度横滨舞蹈艺术节展演《Nihondatedatte》，该剧目包括两场演出：《my choice, my body》和《Anchor》，均由Ayane NAKAGAWA创作。
《my choice, my body》 由三名舞者运用滑步和能面等日本舞蹈标志性表达元素，对现代舞蹈进行重新解读，并对日本人的身体形象展开探索。Ayane Nakagawa的这一作品在2021年12月横滨舞蹈大赛（第1组别）中获奖。与《my choice, my body》同时展演的另一剧目源自对Nakagawa团队＜Suichu-megane∞＞于2017年横滨舞蹈大赛（第2组别）表演的《Endangered Species》的最新改编。该作品以 “锚”（Anchor）为题，将地球视为物种“繁殖场”，对生存的意义展开思考。 《Anchor》是独舞剧目，从编舞、执导到表演均由Nakagawa独立完成。
à propos de l'artiste
A director, choreographer, and dancer, Ayane Nakagawa has a diverse background in classical dance, including ballet and Japanese traditional dance, as well as street dance. She majored in theater at the J. F. Oberlin University, where she founded the ＜Suichu-megane∞＞ dance company in 2011 and began presenting choreographed works. Her work has drawn attention for its exploration of the relationship between the individual and society, historical perspectives that have settled deep in the body, and fearless expression of taboos. She was selected as a finalist in the 2017 YDC Competition II and the 2018 Competition I. In December 2021, she performed “my choice, my body,” which earned her both the Jury Prize and the Prize of the French Embassy in Japan – Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels, for young choreographers at the Competition I. Ayane Nakagawa is highly regarded for her choreography and direction which encompass a diverse array of dance and theatrical perspectives.
