Prune Helfter

Dancer and Founder of the "House of African Art" in Japan

I am the founder of the "House of African Art" (HAA!) in Japan, a project that will provide a permanent space to introduce Japan to the energy, spirituality and beauty of Africa through Art.
I practice dances from West Africa, and took part to the professional workshop organized at the "Ecole des Sables" in Senegal in 2009. I belong to the Japanese contemporary dance company “Ohashi Kakuya and Dancers” that showed a new version of "The Rite of Spring" in Tokyo in May 2010.
Graduated from Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po), I hold an MBA from Essec Business School and a PhD in Economics. I am the General Director of the NGO Doctors of the World Japan (Médecins du Monde Japon).
