Kakuya Ohashi and Dancers' new piece "Tokyo Story" will be performed in Germany and Poland, as a world premiere, in a tour "Dance from Japan".

Kakuya Ohashi and Dancers have created many pieces which depict the internal and external bodies of people of contemporary Japanese society by using an original creation method based on Butoh. For our new piece, we have chosen our home city Tokyo to be its theme.

The following will be the details.
* All the performances will be double features with KENTARO!!

[Performing Dates]
15, 16 Sep. 2010 Pumpenhaus, Münster
18 Sep. 2010 Tanzhaus, Düsseldorf
25, 27 Sep. 2010 Imaka Theatre, Warsaw

[Performance Time]
Approximately 35minutes (for Kakuya Ohashi and Dancers)

[Synopsis]
The plot is located in the city. In this space, there are five men and women, continuously passing by each other, unaware of the others. Their values and principles they once had are quietly and gradually, but without doubt, fading away. They are caught in the middle of the ordinary and the extraordinary life, where the border is always blurred.
As it was for the old couple who appeared in the movie “Tokyo Story” by Yasujiro Ozu, Tokyo never shows its true picture to us. Tokyo swallows them and they are lost. Their lost bodies, bodies that have nowhere to return, are drifting endlessly.

"Bleached" is a new work of Kakuya Ohashi and Dancers with a live music play by "jabo".
The place is an abandoned bike park in the middle of the city. The piece explores the relationship between people and the city, which begins with a background deprived (Bleached) situation. This is a site-specific piece in which the performing space plays a significant factor. Also, it collaborates with musicians who lead Tokyo's music improvisation scene today.

Chain of Clarity Premium Edition [ _english , chain , topics ]

Kakuya Ohashi and Dancers PRESENTS "Chain of Clarity" Premium Edition

Kakuya Ohashi's position within the Japanese contemporary dance scene is unique. His works have excluded the elements of "dance” as much as possible, and pursuits to the extreme the fact that the body is in front of the eye, here and now. "Chain of Clarity” can said to be the culmination of those works by Ohashi.
by Tatsuro Ishii ( Dance critic )
