Originally from Japan, Takashi Takiguchi is a Melbourne-based dancer, performer and a creative producer.
Since he started his artistic career at the age of 38 in 2013, he has performed at numerous festivals here in Australia and abroad. He believes that everyone can be a singer, dancer, a maker and a creator no matter how old we become.
His background as a social worker has led him to actively engage and encourage many independent artists. Some highlights include a producer for Pelem Festival (Indonesia) and ButohOUT! Festival (Melbourne) and also an associate operation manager for Melaka Arts and Performance Festival (Malaysia) of all which do not have any curating process for programming to actualise the inclusive platform in a true sense.
