Inspired by the book Night on the milky way train by the japanese authour Kenji Miyazawa coreographer Rumiko Otsuka makes her first full lenght performance adressing the question of self-sacrifice in realtion to happiness.
Hej då Campanella! is a Swedish/Japanese collaboration between choreographer Rumiko Otsuka and audio and visual artists Kunihiko Matsuo and juni Koyanagi.
The beloved japanese author Kenji Miazawa (d. 1933) is a representation of japanese traditions. As a devoted buddist self-sacrifice is a reoccuring theme in his litterary world and is also one of the hightest valued virtues in Japan. By investigating Miyazawas work Rumiko Otsuka explores our relation to self-sacrifice as a way to happiness.

Kenji Miyazawa
(1896-1933) is one of Japan' s most beloved writers and poets, known particularly for his sensitive and symbolist children' s fiction.
120 years ago the author Kenji Miyazawa was born in Hanamaki, the northern part of Japan, He was a teacher, an engineer and a philosopher.
He lived in an era when the treat of world war II was growing and he died at the early age of 37, in 1933.
Through his stories he reflected his experiences of life and the philosophies that he believed, greatly influenced by his sister' s death.
Night on the milky way train is a collection of journey' s. A child' s journey through life .... and death, symbolizing the path we all take and the choices we must make...

A multimedia dance performance that connects memories of the past, present, and future

HILUM :
1. Botany - the mark or scar on a seed produced by separation from its funicle or placenta. the nucleus of a granule of starch.
2. Mycology - a mark or scar on a spore at the point of attachment to the spore-bearing structure.
3. Anatomy - the region at which the vessels, nerves, etc., enter or emerge from a part.

This production is a live performance to share a new memory in the present moment and to connect past and future memories about the land.
In the playground of the abandoned Kawakami junior high school, there suddenly appears a stark-white hexagonal pillar which is alien to the surroundings of Kawakami' s deep nature.
The object looks like the earth' s navel or a window to another dimension. Various images, some of them alien to the land while others awake memories of the land, are projected onto the object. There, six performers dance as if they are laying a trail of new memories and then, as if they are reeling in old memories.
Electronic sounds, buzzing airwaves, and sounds from a distant land meld with the ambient sounds on the stage until they become indistinguishable from each other. There emerges a soundscape that has never been heard there before or since. The next moment, drums are beaten as if to drive the dancers.
Through the experience of this setting called performance, the audience will perceive the past, present, and future not as 'upper case history' but as a calm and incessant flow of time and will realize that he/she exists to constitute the memory of this time and this place.
Following the resident production and premiere in Kawakami, the piece will then be performed without any alteration, at special places in and out of Japan that are filled with history and memories as deep and still as those of the old Kawakami junior high school are.

ODISHA BIENNALE 2015,
is a socio-cultural event to be held between 26th October to 1st November in Bhubaneswar, which will bring together artists, critics, teachers, students and art enthusiasts from all over the world. Through live performances, workshops, exhibitions and interactive sessions, ODISHA BIENNALE aims to build a variety of cross-cultural discourses in the fields of dance, art, music, photography, film, design and fashion in an international context with special attention to creating a sustainable environment by amalgamating social causes with the reaches of cultural and artistic efforts. By inviting internationally acclaimed artists to Bhubaneswar, ODISHA BIENNALE will evolve and advance in bringing Odisha to a new level of development in artistic and cultural exchange with the world. In addition, working closely with children, ODISHA BIENNALE aims to bring forth a generation of inspired young minds to take forward the message of Mudra Foundation to represent the heritage of Odisha globally. An exciting endeavor, ODISHA BIENNALE looks at challenging traditional thinking and encouraging new levels of enthusiasm for innovative and creative expression. With the increased awareness, Odisha will truly become a dynamic hub for current ideas and an open society that encourages freedom of expression and debate, significantly benefiting the society socially, economically and culturally.

THEME 'Mélange'
As the theme suggests ODISHA BIENNALE 2015 will be a true amalgamation of art, artists and art lovers in all senses. From the plethora of artists gracing the festival, to the variety of events and attendees, ODISHA BIENNALE will be a unique alloy of national and international artists who would put together their skills to form a canvas of creative experiments and experiences that aim to inspire, motivate, teach and share. This will allow a faithful mixture of ideas not only in individual art forms but also inter-disciplinary collaborations. By providing a unique platform we aim to both increase the desire to create and also to nurture a deep sense of inter-culturality, which will help in a greater understanding of the importance of culture and communication for solving present challenges at a global scale. We aim to promote interest in art and culture with a view to stimulate innovation, creativity and with a keen understanding of cultural diversity and expression. ODISHA BIENNALE, through collaboration will highlight how marginalized cultures can regain cultural recognition through collaboration with international artists, allowing them to innovate on a larger platform.

[ Recollections ] YUKO KOMINAMI - KUNIHIKO MATSUO - TOMAS TELLO

art_connection_0938.jpg

PERFORMANCE II, dos noches de performance que incluyen "Re-collections" por Yuko Kominami y "Otoño" por Ana Zavala.

Museo de Arte Contemporáneo - Lima
Av. Miguel Grau 1511, Lima 04 Barranco, Lima, Peru
21:00 6th 7th May 2014

Re-collections is a performance which aims to connect memories from the past and the future of a place by sharing memories of the present together.

The stage is surrouded by trees and ponds, and covered with dried cow dung. In the middle of it, a bed-size white "monolith" stands like an alien substance. Various images are projected on this monolith, which might seem, at first sight, alien to the place but in fact they are to awaken forgotten memories of the place. While these images are running, the dancer dances as if she were placing new memories on the land.

The electronic sounds, intersecting airwaves, field recordings from far away places are played live and interglated into the environmental sound of the place, making a soundscape which is unique to the present. And also the the sound of the drum pushing the dancer into moving. By experiencing this site-specific performance as a device to feel the past, present and future as a loose and continuous flow of time closely connected to the place, and not as History with the capital letter, the audience can realise that they themselves are one of the component of the memories of here and now.

The space where this is performed can be from historical site to absolutely anonymous space, both outside or inside, however, ideally it is better not to be a conventional theatre space.

Concept by Rumiko Otsuka
Audio/visual artist: Junji Koyanagi & Kunihiko Matsuo
Performed by: Rumiko Otsuka & Khamlane Halsackda

I would like to welcome you to my studio showing at Danscetrum Syd. This is a result of what I researched in Japan with 2 audio/visual artist, Junji Koyanagi and Kunihiko Matsuo, in Tokyo in January. 'Good Bye Campanella' is influenced by a popular Japanese fairy tale written by author Kenji Miyazawa. A literary, scientific, and religious fable, ' Milky Way Railroad' depicts a universe that is intensely sad yet profoundly miraculous.

I would like to share our experiment and receive feedback from the audience to aid further develop. A premiere is scheduled Autumn 2015, funded by Malmö stad.

This research period is funded/supported by Konstnärsnämnden, and Danscentrum Syd.

Odissi Dance
紀元前2世紀からの歴史をもち、7つのインド古典舞踊のうちのひとつであるオディッシーダンス。インドの東に位置するオディシャ州で生まれた。他のインド古典舞踊と同様、ヒンドゥー教の寺院内で、巫女たちによって日夜神にささげるために踊られていた踊りが発展したものである。13世紀に建築されたコナーラクの太陽寺院のダンスホールには、踊り子たちの様々なポーズが美しい彫刻として残っている。オディッシーはまるでその彫刻たちが踊りだしたようなダンスなのである。

Un vieil arbre, grand et honoré par le temps, né et vécu une fois dans une dense forêt, aujourd'hui se retrouve seul au milieu d'un désert. Une nuit de pleine lune amène un musicien gitan sous son ombre. Jungala raconte en série des évènements qui se sont passés pendant leur rencontre.

On ne connaît pas l'ordre, ni l'histoire en entier, mais juste quelques évènements. Les interprètes, deux danseuses et deux musiciens se retrouvent ainsi dans des situations enjunglées qui se dévoilent devant leurs yeux en laissant libre cours à l'exploration, le suspense, la découverte, la surprise et l'émerveillement. Jungala est une pièce chorégraphique d'une durée de 40 min pour enfants à partir de 5 ans avec musique live, projection interactive et danse.

Kenneth Flak | Korzo producties

The performance The Chinese Room premiered in 2010. The point of departure is the question of what is the next step in human evolution. Will the human race finally merge with machines and with each other, permanently linking us together in a universal organism? Together with dancer Külli Roosna, light designer Thomas Dotzler and multimedia artist Matsuo Kunihiko, Kenneth explores the new Humanity 2.0. Can we remain human in a networked reality where technology, biology, mind and power have all become one?

原作:岸田理生

リオフェス2011
第5回岸田理生アバンギャルドフェスティバル

人魚の肉を食べたため不老不死になり、十代の美しさを保ったまま何百年も生き続けたという八百比丘尼の物語が現代に蘇る。時は現代、舞台はひとりの少女が通う女子高校である。少女は15の歳に不治の病に冒され、医師に3年しか生きられないと宣告される。少女の運命を哀れみ、嘆き悲しむ父親は、人魚の肉を手に入れ、そうとは知らせずに少女に食べさせる。少女の病は癒えるが、代わりに17歳のからだのまま永遠に死ねない運命に苛まされることになるのだった。

The Chinese Room
collaboration with choreographer Kenneth Flak and light designer Thomas Dotzler

What's the next stage in the evolution of humanity? Will we finally merge with the machines and with each other, creating the New Human, Humanity 2.0, permanently wired into the universal Mind of Mankind, finally dissolved, finally rid of individual existence...

In The Chinese Room Kenneth Flak hurls himself and his collaborators Külli Roosna, Thomas Dotzler, Matsuo Kunihiko and Thomas Falk into an investigation of what it is to be human in a networked reality, searching for links between the technologies of power, the technologies of the mind and the technologies of information. How do these technologies shape the body? How does the body shape these technologies? Where is the mind in all of this? Will we still be human if we merge with the machines? Or are we already machines--free at least from the messy business of the flesh?

URUVAM

Hemabharathy Palani ,India
Jan 30th, 7.30 PM (a part of Mixed Bill -an evening of six eclectic performances) Rangashankara

Hemabharathy Palani -- winner of the Robert Bosch Young Choreographer's Award 2009 -- has evolved a unique movement style by blending the distilled vocabularies of Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi with the freedom of contemporary dance. Hemabharathy uses the Indian mythological story of Ambe as a starting point for Uruvam. Though versions of the story differ in their facts, the central theme of anguish and the giving up of one's body and sexual identity in order to access a greater range of rights and actions remains. The stories underline the sense of power and conflict that this decision to change entails. Hemabharathy draws inspiration from these to create her piece Uruvam, where she has delved into the ideas of form and transformation.

Kenneth Flak
The Norwegian dancer and choreographer Kenneth Flak has for a number of years been active as a dancer and choreographer in the Netherlands and Norway. As a dancer, he appeared in various productions by André Gingras. In 2007 he was awarded the prestigious Bessie Award for his achievement in Gingras' solo CYP17. As a choreographer he created, amongst others, Unison, God Studies and Of Gods and Driftwood. The latter was included in the 2010 Blind Date tour.

His latest performance, The Chinese Room will premiere in the countdown dance weekend. The point of departure is the question of what is the next step in human evolution. Will the human race finally merge with machines and with each other, permanently linking us together in a universal organism? Together with dancer Külli Roosna, light designer Thomas Dotzler and multimedia artist Matsuo Kunihiko, Kenneth explores the new Humanity 2.0. Can we remain human in a networked reality where technology, biology, mind and power have all become one?

La Lune avait disparu des cieux depuis des mois...
Les marées étaient dès lors invisibles et inaudibles,
Les bateaux tournaient en rond, cherchant en vain leur rive.
Chiens et loups se retrouvaient sans repos, hurlant jour et nuit.
Où était donc passée la Lune ? Dérobée, enlevée ?

« Projet O » est un conte moderne, une ravissante performance faite de jeux et de surprises, une chasse au trésor menée par trois danseurs et deux musiciens...
Retrouveront-ils la Lune ? ...et elle, sa place dans le firmament ?


In ihrer vollendeten Form haben die geometrischen Grundfiguren Kreis und Kugel seit jeher große Faszination ausgelöst und die menschliche Vorstellung inspiriert.
Drei Tänzer und zwei Musiker sind auf der Suche nach dem Mond, der eines Tages urplötzlich verschwand.

<h />our<br />link (hour blink) is the first media art work of Hideaki Takahashi , who, as electronica artist mjuc among other projects has released two albums and has composed for film, TV and performance events.
With the expansion of the Internet and its connectivity to related technology, media and information networks have spread rapidly across the globe. We are constantly exposed to streams of information everyday. However, what do we actually know? In a world where incidents are treated with similar analytical processes and absorbed by newly-released information, how can we regard each of the incidents as something that can happen to you? Where is the space for the imagination?

In this event, we provide a flood of information through 10 speakers placed between the seats, 16 super tweeters hang from the ceiling, 6 projection screens suspended at various angles, LED light displays and other audio-visual equipment are also included in the space. When we are forced to face in danger ? our brink ? what do we see? This is an experiment to question the brink of reality.
This DVD was re-edited by mixing live shooting visuals with original visuals ,including 5.1 surround mix track.

[City On The Move] Attakkalari India Biennial 2009. Opening event

onthemove.jpg

Kunihiko MATSUO will be joining the opening site specific performance of Attakkalari India Biennial 2009 to be held on the 6th February 2009.

Attakkalari India Biennial will open with On the Move - a dynamic site-specific promenade performance featuring dance, martial arts, acoustic and computer generated music, visual projections, large scale colorful carnival costumes and innovative lights. On the Move will challenge the idea of space and architecture by offering new perceptions of the site of performance linking it to the city- its locations, histories and lives of the people. Electrifying moves of dancers and martial artists from India, Spain, Africa and the UK are set to a captivating score by Lorenzo Brucci and a team of Indian and Portugese percussionists. Site design, visual projections and lights are by Japanese artists Kunihiko Matsuo, Naoki Hamanaka and Mitsuaki Matsumoto as well as Christian Ziegler (Germany) and Thomas Dotzler (Sweden). Spectacular costumes are designed by Ali Pretty and team from Kinetika (UK).

Capturing the spirit of migration, relocation and enduring flux, On the Move invokes images of disciplined martial practices and dance traditions; chaotic streets teeming with automobiles, people and activities; colorful markets, houses of worships, construction sites and call centers; processions, festivities and exercises in the park etc. Truly a collaborative effort of artists from different parts of the world, drawing from their individual journeys as well as the historical ones such as spice trades of yester years, On the Move portrays urban life, its little joys as well as trials and tribulations.

Physical performance:
Led by choreographers such as Jayachandran Palazhy, Moya Michael (Belgium), Jou (Japan), Anani (Africa) as well as Spanish & British choreographers of Brouhaha, Nakula Somana, Dil Sagar, Rakesh, Hema Bharathy and Denny Paul celebrated Kalari martial artists from India, contemporary dancers from the UK, Africa and India as well as Flamenco dancers from Spain create a rich and fresh movement language for the piece. Dynamic contemporary moves mix with distilled lines of Bharatanatyam and exuberance of Bollywood dance. Local folk artists (dancers)

Music:
Classical sounds of L Subramanium (in negotiation), Hariharan (Mizhavu) and a team of percussionists will be woven into a fabric of sound scapes created by Lorenzo Brucci, Kunihiko Matsuo and Mitsuaki Matsumoto by mapping the city sonically. Sounds of the city - builders, widening roads, markets, call centre taxis, motorcycles, autos, push carts, cafes, bars, Mobile phones, ring tones, FM radio etc. will feed into the sonic fabric of the piece.

Visual treatment and interactivity:
Cutting edge digital artist Kunihiko Matsuo and Christian Ziegler will work on the visual projections and interactive scenography of the piece challenging and shifting our perceptions. Architect Naoki Hamanaka and light designer Thomas Dotzler will enhance the visual feast with imaginative lighting.

Costumes:
Ali Pretty and her team from Kinetika will work with students of National Institute of Fashion Technology

この作品は、インドと日本のアーティストが制作のために両国を往来し、ヒンズー思想の重要概念Purushartha(プルシャルタ)をめぐる対話をつうじて、先端技術と伝統的な手法をふんだんに用いて表現したパフォーマンス作品。自由な表現としての「メディアパフォーマンス」を完成させました。

世界で注目を浴びるジャヤチャンドラン・パラジー(振付家)率いるダンスカンパニーAttakkalari center for movement arts -アタカラリ-と、松尾邦彦(メディアアーティスト)、松本充明(音楽家)によるデジタル技術を駆使したインタラクティブな映像とライブエレクトロニクス音楽、濱中直樹(建築家)による白色LEDを使用したオリジナル照明装置による「マルチメディアパフォーマンス」作品です。
