Recoed – FESTIVAL SPACE DANCE Online 2020 / 
記録 – フェスティバル・スペースダンス・オンライン2020

We hold this festival every year in cooperation with our live activities, and train space dancers around the world with enough time, slowly. Then, we form “New Stage for Expression and Interchange” unaffected by the trend of the times to show the activity as an artist for a lifetime.
 
私たちは、ライブ活動と連携してこのフェスティバルを毎年開催し、時間をかけて、ゆっくりと、世界中にスペースダンサーを育成し、時代の潮流に左右されることがない、アーティストとしての能動性を生涯にわたり発揮できるように、「表現と交流のための新しいステージ」を形成します。

This dance invites my body to move with the stimulation of my senses. What my skin feels, what my eyes see, what my memories, emotions and imagination detonate. My feet dance with gravity and the rest of my body sculpts the void. I dance with space and space makes me dance.

●Cristina Elias (Sao Paulo, Brazil)

[Video / ビデオ; youtube]

I first met Tetsuro Fukuhara in Rome in 2013 when I participated in his workshop. Since then, I have been training my body-mind to be creative based on his four chapters method of Butoh. In this process, I discovered an open method of body-mind training, which prepares the artist for focused and structured creation, in a context, where freedom, chance and improvisation build the basic structure of this process. In the video that follows, I try to give expression to how I incorporated Fukuhara’s principles and practices into my artistic process.
