A cult figure in Japan, Saburo Teshigawara began his career in Tokyo in 1981 after studying the unusual combination of plastic arts and classical ballet. In 1985 he formed his own company, KARAS, with Kei Miyata and started creating group choreographies alongside other visual art works. With KARAS he has performed in major cities all over the world and has been commissioned by many international ballet companies (Frankfurt Ballet, Paris Opera, Nederland Dans Theater).
Read on for a fantastic Japan Centre competition to win tickets to see this new performance.
Teshigawara returns to Sadler’s Wells with his company’s newest work, Mirror and Music. Danced by a cast of eight, with a fascinating solo performed by Teshigawara himself, Mirror and Music explores the simultaneously tangible and intangible nature of music and the reflection we see when we look into the mirror.
“One of the most striking examples of imagistic dance-theatre, or dance-art installation, that I have ever seen”
– NEW YORK TIMES
