HIBI - days
Old tree shape.
The shape is the agglomeration of the days that have been accumulated.
Even if it dies, its shape and skeleton do not change.
Its form is dance.
I want to be that kind of tree which is praying between heaven and earth.
I keep chasing the magical time which transforms everyday life into the life of dance.
(Atsushi Takenouchi)
Atsushi Takenouchi, Butoh dancer, choreographer
Joined the Butoh dance company “Hoppo-Butoh-ha“ in Hokkaido in 1980. His last performance with the company was "Takazashiki" (1984), which was worked on by Butoh founder Tatsumi Hijikata. Atsushi started his own theme “Jinen Butoh” in 1986, and created solo works “Itteki” and “Ginkan,” as a universal expression of nature, earth, and ancient times, environments. He made a three-year “JINEN” tour project throughout Japan for 600 site-specific improvisations (1996–1999). Since this time, he has been inspired by the spirit of the universe of Kazuo Ohno and Yoshito Ohno. Since 2002, he has been mainly based in Europe, working on Butoh dance collaboration projects with dancers and actors in Italy, France, Poland, Spain, U.S.A., South America, and other countries. Joining in festivals such as Paris Butoh Festival, NY Butoh Festival, Avignon off Festival, etc, he has been presenting his solo pieces. At the same time, he also collaborates with film makers.
