” Kakela”

I am just a fragment. Who knows where this fragment comes from.
 What am I ? With this question humans travel through life.
 Why go so many places? Why tirelessly keep going until death? Why always look for new people, new experiences…?
Because I want to know…. what I am. I wanted to understand…. very deeply.
 Before becoming a fragment, you and me were one ?
 Before becoming a fragment, sky and me were one ?
 Before becoming a fragment, sea and me were one ?
 Awakened people said to me,
 Do not search outside, look in. Truth is inside of you.
 That’s why I put a ladder inside to go in myself one step at a time.
 This is the beginning of butoh.
 But I keep on dancing, that means I meet new people, I have new experience
 Even though awakened people said sit still and look inside.
 I really want to meet you, I want to meet sea, I want to meet sky, I want to meet light.
…May be I just wanted to know what am I.
 But this dire need to meet new people, new things.
 I am a fragment, not perfect, a broken piece.
 I’m a dreamer of life that’s why this need to meet.
Million billion years ago, we were just one thing….

Atsushi has started his own „Jinen Butoh“ since 1986 and created solo works „Itteki“, „Ginkan“ as a universal expression of nature, earth, and ancient times and impressions of the moment, meeting with people and environment. He made 3 year “JINEN” tour project throughout
