Saburo Teshigawara Lost in Dance

By on September 20, 2019

Saburo Teshigawara is one of Japan’s most influential creators of its generation. At the age of 65, he is still very active on the stage. This fall he has premiered for his “Lost in Dance”.

Peeled, poetic and feather-light. “Lost in dance” is masterful dance art in its rawest, most concentrated form; as always when acclaimed veteran Saburo Teshigawara creates his artwork.

Teshigawara is really an artist in the right sense of the word. Choreographer, but also writer, artist, lighting designer and scenographer.

”I don’t live to make dance. When there is something I want to express, if I hold a pen it will be poetry, if I have a canvas in front of me it will be a painting, and if there is space around me it will become a dance.” – Saburo Teshigawara

And in his works he also likes to do everything. In the duet “Lost in dance” he stands for directing, lighting design, sound collage and also dances himself on stage.

But the real protagonist of “Lost in dance” is Rihoko Sato – Teshigawara’s partner for over 20 years. Inspired by Teshigawara’s movement universe but with its own original expression, Sato’s swirling, virtuoso creature is an all-around wonderful experience.

“Lost in dance” premiered in Havana, Cuba, during the summer of 2018, but is now coming to Dansens Hus in an expanded, reworked full evening version.

Saburo Teshigawara Lost in Dance can be experienced at Dansens Hus Thursday 26 September 2019!
