Kazuo Ohno Festival 2013
Reprise: Physical Expression of the Zeitgeist

With the 2013 Kazuo Ohno Festival, we celebrate the tenth in a series that has constantly been with the prevailing wind in the dance world, both on a national and international level. With the theme of a 'physical expression of the zeitgeist,' Kazuo Ohno was the focus of the first festival back in 2004. Over time we have expanded the program and broadened our perspective. This year we once again continue to produce and present dancers and artists who have inherited and incorporate the spirit of Kazuo Ohno's work – a work that remains close to the spirit of the times we live in and yet timeless.
In the hall on the ground floor, three groups will be in residency during the festival, and will present the fruits of their work to the public. On the third floor visitors will have the opportunity to view the ever-increasing amount of contemporary dance videos and archive materials, including those in the cyber world, where all kinds of people upload all kinds of dance. As part of our international program, we have invited the Lyon based dance company from the Centre Chorégraphique National de Rillieux-la-Pape under the direction of Yuval Pick. Another outstanding feature of this year's festival will be the Kanze Hideo Day to pay homage to Kazuo Ohno's close friend and innovative Noh-player who left a huge mark on contemporary theatre. We see our festival as a bridge between past and future, a place where we treasure our deep heritage and foster those that carry that torch into the future. We look forward to your company.

Herdenohr: The Group Ear

photo:Hiroyasu Ohhora

Herdenohr (German for herd and ear) refers to a species developing a group ear. Those appearing in this work have the look of a ragged dishcloth – and for different reasons. Just like flotsam whose whereabouts is unknown. In our day-to-day stirrings, we detect our tomorrow. This première will feature five scenes of unbridled temperament, rich in wit and humour. In a fascinatingly dense work, dancers of different backgrounds collaborate with actors and performers, confronting the problem of the meaning to express, in a performance that can be described as nothing less than dancing on the ledge.

Today's Dance

On 16 December 2012, as election for the House of Representatives were held, I declared: "I will dance the corresponding number of minutes to the number of tweets of 'I cast my vote' that I receive."

Since then until the House of Councillors elections on 21 July, 2013 I have performed an unconventional dance for two minutes every day in various locations as part of the project 'today's dance' that I subsequently uploaded on YouTube.

Project Oyama

The dancer Baku Ishii once referred to himself as 'Odorubaka', or dancing fool. What did he in fact mean? A copy of the 9.5 mm film with Ishii's 1925 work Grotesque has survived. Chou Seung Hee, one of the three female dancers who featured in the film, was then 16. Odorubaka as reconstructed by Project Oyama, sheds light on the beginnings of western dance in Japan, while touching upon the spirit of 'the dancing fool.'

Research Project:
I saw you trying to dance.

This project centres on research on the recent phenomenon on the web platform Niconico's 'Odottemita' (I tried to dance), a site posting dance related videos. In addition to the vast number of uploads, there are also numerous accesses that reveal very 'contemporary' or/and ‘dance,’ providing us an insight as to how the new dance community exist within the prevailing information society. For all you lovers of dance, let's take a look at 'I tried to dance.' New relationships between ‘dance’ and 'seeing' are beginning to emerge.

Takao Kawaguchi
Kazuo Ohno

I never saw Kazuo Ohno perform onstage. Recently I've had occasion to see videos of and photographs of his work and was struck by their profound beauty. While I'm unable to articulate my thoughts clearly, I feel a sense of kinship with the undulating movements of his body. As though something sensual stimulates. I thought to completely devote myself to it, just as one would pour melted iron into a mould.

In commemoration of the sixth anniversary of Kanze Hideo's parting;

Kanze Tetsunojo "Uto: Birds of Sorrow"
Kanji Shimizu "Somon: Love poem"

To mark the sixth anniversary of Kanze Hideo's sudden death in 2007, we have organised Kanze Hideo Day so that we can reflect upon the enormous impact he had upon all genres in the world of contemporary theatre. In addition to the pleasure of a repeat performance of Somon, which Kanze himself performed at this festival in 2005, we will also have occasion to view one of his favourite noh plays, Uto (Birds of Sorrow). In an attempt to retrace some of the ground Kanze Hideo covered, the day will also feature a talk, films screenings, and the possibility to browse at the various precious materials on display.

Kanze Hideo
Born in 1927 in Shitaya, Tokyo as the second son of Kanze Tetsunojo, the seventh (also known as Gasetsu), Kanze Hideo attended the Tokyo Music School. His elder brother is Kanze Hisao and the little brother is Shizuo, Kanze Tetsunojo, the eighth. In 1949 he was converted to another Noh school, the Kita group, and finally left the Noh world in 1958. Since then he directed many contemporary theaters and operas, and appeared in films and TV dramas. In 1966 he directed the first performance of Makoto Sato’s Underground Free Theater. He also collaborated with many composers. Since 1979, when he resumed his career in Noh theater, he had performed many traditional Noh dance. Also he served as a chairman of the board of directors in Tessen-kai Noh group, and a professor of Kyoto University of Art & Design. His achievements include overseas Noh performances by Zeami-za theater, antinuclear Noh performances by Sarugaku-no-za theater, and promotion of Noh theater by Nogaku-za theater. He was received the Art Encouragement Prize of the Ministry of Education in 1997 and Mobil Music Award in 1998. Kazuo Ohno and Hideo Kanze co-performed “Mu (nothing)” in 1998.

Akira Kasai
I dance the Japanese Constitution

In my fifty years of dancing life I have to date never directly had dealings either with the Japanese state or for that matter with the Constitution of Japan since it was enacted in 1947. However, as I recently read the constitutional amendments proposed by the Liberal Democratic Party, in which they notably advocate a revocation of Article 9 – the clause renouncing war, I felt physically challenged; my blood roared and clamoured. Listening to this muted voice within me, I intuitively sensed that the post-war Constitution enacted back in 1947 was in fact like the skeleton of my own body. As a source of metaphysical 'law,' the key principles of liberty, equality and fraternity convinced me that they are not only applicable to those alive but also to our forbearers. The Constitution ought to constantly strive towards the 'ideal.' I would like my thoughts on the matter to assume a 'physical form.'

Late Night Show:
