Melbo-ren (Awa Odori)

Awa Odori is the largest dance festival in Japan, endearingly called the "Fool's Dance". This nickname comes from the lyrics to a common dance song, which translates as: “The dancers are fools, the spectators are fools, both are fools, so why not dance together?”. Melbourne’s own Awa Odori group called Melbo Ren was conceived in homage to the original. The deceptively simple moves are accompanied by an up beat two-beat rhythm. We cordially invite you to embrace the spirit and fun of the ‘Fool’s Dance’ and join us during our performance.
