SUNY Fredonia BFA Dance 2019年卒業。NYCでイマーシブシアターを中心に活動しつつ、ミュージックビデオ、ストレートプレイなどにも出演。
現在はオンラインでNYCの制作チームExperience You&I Zoom Immersive Experience Hearts of Cranesを共同制作、主演役者として活動しつつ、コンテンポラリー、ダンスシアターを捜索/創作をテーマに身体表現芸術に没頭する。

Manatsu Tanaka is a non-binary artist, who constantly explores their artistry in many different fields;  Dance, Immersive Theater, Stage Combat, Acting, Music Videos, Artistic Photoshoots,  Burlesque, Aerial Silks, Choreography, and more!
After performing with Theater Big Dream Yamato Troupe in Japan for 7 years resulting in 14 Musical Theater productions, performing their wide range of acting skills regardless of the written gender of the roles, they chose their way to NY state to pursue their BFA in Dance.
Grand jete-ing between Fredonia and NYC, they have danced in works by Paul Taylor , Douglas Dun, Jon Lehrer , and many other various genres of concert dance makers. But Manatsu was curious; “What is my artistic expression beyond concert dance?”
Manatsu actively sought acting opportunities in school, and performed in BENT and Almost, Maine, and re-discovering their love to not only acting, but to the thrill of “jump out of your comfort zone, see what awaits there”
Even after graduating in 2019, Manatsu’s journey of seeing how they can expand their own field as an artist has not slowed down at all. In addition to booking gigs in Dance and Theater, they can be seen in Music Videos of various artists, and recently they starred in Mona Haydar, Cell7, and SKOUT’s videos.
Jumping out from the screen, (and perhaps the best jump that they have ever made for themself) Manatsu has been immersed into the world of immersive theater, and has been an original cast for immersive theater productions such as “The Church of Strangers” by Randy Wiener, “ZeroSpace” by the producers of Queen of the Night, “Pansy Craze” by Maya Dawyer and Breadcrumbs Production. Currently, Immersive theater has caught their heart, and they hope to pursue more in this art form as an immersive theater performer.
They are a proud Company Member of Hard/Femme Dances, and a co-creator and the lead actor of Hearts of Cranes, an immersive online immersive experience in collaboration with Experience You&I. which is currently running online with Manatsu being in Japan and connecting with wherever the audience member is from around the world. Starting from March 2021, they will join the Madmoiselle Cinema Dance Company at Kagurazaka Session House to explore creation and performance with them throughout the year.
Outside of dance, they are currently training in Tate(Japanese Sword Combat) and Unarmed Action for films at the Takase Dojo, and also continuing their aerial silks training at the Aerial Art Dance Project.
