The Wider Image: Meet the Japanese wheelchair dancer who dreams of performing at Olympics ceremony
Kenta Kambara, 34, stretches during a break at a rehearsal for an upcoming performance, at a studio in Tokyo, Japan, February 1, 2020. Kambara who was born with spina bifida, a disorder that paralysed his lower body, aims to perform at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics opening or closing ceremonies. "These days, people use the keyword 'diversity' but not many people have experienced it themselves," he said. "I want people to understand by seeing me dance that it's precisely because my body is different that it is interesting. Then that will become a trigger to accept other people's differences."
