Saburo Teshigawara/KARAS

“A magnificent epic of the human spirit.” —Asahi

One of the great international artists working in dance today, Saburo Teshigawara erases the body and reaches for the dance of the soul. In a rare U.S. visit, he presents his newest solo, a work of striking visual beauty, rigor, and clarity. In Miroku, he explores space and light, extremity and velocity, creating an eternity beyond time where everything harmonizes with delicate yet powerful tension. Unnaturally fluid, melting movement becomes edgy, vibrating, and then blissfully still. Teshigawara has likewise received increasing international attention in the visual arts field for his art exhibitions, films, and videos as well as his set, lighting, and costume designs for all his performances.
