Saburo Teshigwara is one of the most influential Japanese performers and choreographers to date and highly acclaimed for his innovative forms of physical expression that break away from conventional stylistic techniques. Starting his creative career in 1981 after studying plastic arts and classic ballet, he soon went on to form his performance company KARAS. Since then, Teshigawara and KARAS have gained international fame and accreditation, giving regular performances at prominent venues such as Sadler’s Wells and the Southbank Centre. They have also collaborated with principal dance companies including Frankfurt Ballet and Nederlands Dans Theatre. Teshigawara’s keenly honed sculptural sensibilities, powerful sense of composition, command of space and decisive dance movements all come together to create his unique world. He is also a keen advocate of the potential that dance can hold outside established techniques, engaging people of all walks of life and abilities and facilitating journeys of self-discovery through the medium of dance.
