Portes Ouvertes "Le Vent se Lève" - Open door of  " the wind rises"  in Paris -
The man with black inc and long pole brush was standing by the wall.  
The man with black long hair was lying on the huge white paper in silence. 
When the wind rises, both of men starts each story.
The inc brush was flying like a bird through black rain. The body was swiming like a fish on the white sea. 
Hearing the sound of little insects and sea shells, they encounter, react, chase each other,
and go back to each world again.  
Two little world melt into a huge painting in the end and the painting itself got moving and got alive.
Thank you very much for  "Le Vent se
Lève", nice confortable art space, for giving this poetic moment
with our good friend painter Ludovic de Valon. Thanks for Ludovic !

STONE solo performance and improvisation at 3,000 yrs old cedar tree in Beirut /Lebanon  
We arrived Beirut in the moment of big changement of situation. Citizen were blessing after peace talks
and relieved. We performed solo butoh "STONE" which danced the memory of the Stone, to connect to
the history of the land. As we use local stone at each place for this piece, we went for look stones in the city just
after we arrived airport. And found the stone at the border point of past east and west Beirut, guessing most 
highest tension in those days. Atsushi danced the memory of that stone, and Hiroko also played the sound
of stone from the land. The movement and the sound was making dialogue. 
The last day of our stay, we visited the reserved forest of cedars.  Atsushi danced for 3,000 yrs old cedar tree
in the forest.  The tree was breathing with swinging branches and leaves, and we just felt we wanted to stay
just sitting and looking the tree for long long time...

the meeting of a form and inner movement, collaboration with Sonia Biacchi at Candiani in Venice-
It was a beautiful experience to create  "Il corpo dentro" performance with Sonia, costume designer and the director
of  c.t.r. (centro teatrale di ricerca Venezia). The meeting with her costume inspired Atsushi very much.
And the both of them were as if they were giving life each other and interact each moments in the performance.  
Sonia Biacchi, her work has been affected by  master of Bauhaus Oscar Schlemmer.  At the same time, her design reminds us often Japanese  scenery.  We hope to keep on this collaboration for future.

"Enclosure" project with British artist Red Earth at prehistoric site,  Hambledon hill in Dorset (UK). It was 1km square large, over five thousands years of memory, one of eight National Nature Reserves in UK.  It was on the autumn equinox day, heavy shower changed into deep mist just before starting dance.  Among the fire installation and mist,  Atsushifelt that day was a ritual of meeting with ancestor.

natureside workshop in Greece -
In the Sifnos island, we made natureside camping workshop. Just five days before,  the first forest fire was happened in Peroponnese, and whole forest and mountains were extensively damaged and dessapeared. 
It was really big, sad and painful accident and left people deep shock.  We all changed 
work site into
another island since we had planned workshop at the just fired area. We started workshop 
with requiem dance with participants in the village.  And also we danced deeply for the connection
between human and nature during workshop.We deeply send sympathy and a prayer for the stricken area 
and people.
