Festival Report フェスティバル レポート 2017
This is Freestyler NARI's second time to take part in the Daidogei World Cup, continuing from last year in the Fringe department. He was welcomed again by the warm crowd of Shizuoka.
NARI started performing when he was a sophmore in junior high school in Osaka with his friends. Since then, he has been performing by himself. He is self-taught in dance and acrobatic moves with his friends and incorporates these elements into his freestyle basketball performance.
Originally, NARI wanted to be a basketball player, but decided to focus on ball-handling technique when he realized he couldn't be a professional player. When he started to polish and master his ball-handling skill, he decided not to give up his dream this time. For the last 10 years, NARI has been playing MIYAVI's songs during his performance and dreamt about performing with him. Last year, he won the dance contest run by MIYAVI and got to perform with him on his tour. Now one of his dreams has come true, he is focusing on the next dream; performing at Nippon Budokan. His dream to perform at Nippon Budokan is just another step for his bigger dream to make this world a better place.
As a message for future performers, he said it is very important to focus and work hard toward your dream. Futhermore, he also feels they should voice their opinions and need to find the way to appeal to their audience. The way he keeps focusing and chasing his dream is an example for future performers to follow.
