Atsushi and Hiroko

“Dance is devotion to life.” 
I learned this while travelling nature fields called JINEN. This has never changed since old times and will never change. This means I should dance to “my life,” to the moment, and to now, which lasts forever.
I got my body from the earth. I got my life from the sun and the moon, my parents, my friends and my love. So I’ll return the gifts to these universes. I’ll return them to others through a dancing body and soul. When I see a tiny flower selflessly, I meet a dance filled with the joy of “life.” And then, my body is filled up with the water of “life.” The seeds of memory inside me become a bud.
The sounds of wind are the whispering of the earth. The sound of minerals is the muttering of machines. We hear the sounds of the universe through explosion and noise and stillness.
Oh, thousands of sounds, take our souls far away to our unknown world. As we travel, remind us of forgotten dances. On the sun and the moon, there are young men singing eternal songs at every place in the world. Let’s begin an ancient and modern fete of “relics of life” holding artifice and nature-on earth.
-JINEN Butoh Atsushi Takenouchi

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 Japan for 600 site-specific mprovisations (1996-1999). During this time, he started to be inspired by a spirit of the universe of

世界中のこの危機的状況において、大変多くのアーティストが困難な局面に差し当たっています。私も現在すべてのワークショップと公演をキャンセル延期せざ るをえなくなりました。この今、自分に何ができるのか、また何をするべきなのかを考えて、まずはすぐに”毎朝祈りとともに踊ろう”をネット上にてメッセー ジと稽古動画をあげてきました。
40年舞踏をつづけてきて、次の舞踏の世代、若いダンサーや身体表現者や、舞踏に興味のある、すべてのジャンルの若いアーティスト、そしてオーディエンスのために 私は舞踏を踊り続け、また教え続けていきたいと切に願っています。
