New creation by Japanese dancer Min Tanaka, created together with 8 international performers.



Min Tanaka (Dancer)
Born in Tokyo in 1945.  He was trained in classical ballet and American modern dance around 1960s, and in 1974 he started his own activities and evolved a new style called “hyper-dance.”   In 1978, he made his international debut at the Louvre Museum.  His performance —extremely gentle and infinitesimal movement to withdraw the potentiality of a body— impacted on Art world, far beyond the dance scene as a brad-new artistic expression.  He went to meet Tatsumi Hijikata in person determinedly in 1982, and in 1984, carried out solo performance “School of Love-Dance,” directed and choreographed by Tatsumi Hijikata, (Tatsumi Hijikata died in 1986.)  Starting in 1985, he has been living in a village in mountain side, basing his daily life in farming in order to search for deeper physicality.  Beyond the formalist genre framework, his activities have evolved to the collaborative works with various forms of art such as improvisation music, contemporary music, and opera, not to mention visual art. Since his first appearance in the film “Twilight Samurai” directed by Yoji Yamada in 2002, he has appeared on numbers of films, from the Hollywood movie “47 RONIN” to self-producing experimental films.  While working in the film scene nationally and internationally, he has continued his own avant-garde dance activities consistently, ever since 1970’s.  Tanaka’s incessant and exclusive search for dance as well as the origin of dance, which co-exists with a body—a state of flux— has come to take an approach to dance site-specifically with improvisation, and it has led to “Locus Focus” project series taking place at a variety of every-day life scenes throughout Japan and abroad. Additionally, Tanaka has authored such books as “My Bare Body”, “Conscious Body, Contagious Mind”, and a photo-book: “Photosynthesis MIN by Keiichi TAHARA”.
