Creative protest against anti-dancing law


You’ll hear something when you listen to the Dutch Radio 1! Last week I heard a story about a protest against the anti-dancing laws in Japan from 1948. At the ‘Techno Udon-parties’ in Japan people aren’t dancing but ‘kneading’ special dough! At these parties people are provided with some Udon-dough, covered in plastic, to dance on. This way they get around the provision of the 1948 Adult Entertainment Business Regulation Law that forbids dancing in bars. The parties also exist to promote the old art of making dough. They’re even considering to bring the Udon-parties to other countries as well. ^Marjolein van Spronsen
