MoustacheCat Dance (MCD), founded in 2015 by Kaoru Ikeda – choreographer, dancer, dance educator, and Japanese immigrant – is a dance company that uses art to mirror human nature to audiences by bringing awareness to social issues and abandoned history. Our mission is to explore and create more informed work as well as provide a way for individuals to pass their histories forward to younger generations.
MCD has presented at numerous international and local dance festivals, community colleges, and social justice gatherings. We approach audiences unfamiliar with art or history and present work to encourage them to access both. We are dedicated to serving human dignity through art, especially with a particular focus on Asian and Asian American Communities in the U.S. and elsewhere.
