Born in Japan, but having moved to Sacramento, California as an infant, Ichi Go began to dance just as soon after she could walk. When she returned to Japan she maintained her interest in physicality and movement, studying modern dance from the age of 4 with tutors from the Fuji Mieko Contemporary Dance Company, with whom she performed from the age of 19 to 21. This intense, immersive tutelage and involvement with one of the most illustriousJapanese contemporary dance companies gave her a steady foundation on which to construct her personal style.For several years in her mid-20s, she was forced to stop dancing professionally and pursue other means, but in 2013, feeling a renewed sense of passion, she decided to move to Berlin to focus once again on establishing her artistic practice as the centerpiece of her life. Since then, she has worked extensively as a dancer both in the EU and internationally. In 2020, started “dojo sachiko" in her neighborhood in Reinickendorf. She felt an inspiration for Amaiwado Kagura, and the every-day-life-training for a once-in-a-lifetime encounter through collaborating with art and educational activities in Europe, the United States, and Southeast Asia, and has begun to put her life on the line as an artist.
