28 Oct 2006. In Black Water, choreography by Saburo Teshigawara, a cult name in his native Japan. This is presumably because he is practically the only Japanese dancer/choreographer who has made a name for himself in Europe, and not just as a choreographer and dancer but as a whole package including scenography, lighting and costume design thanks to his background in both ballet and plastic arts. Although based in Tokyo, Teshigawara rejects what he describes as the conservatism of dance in Japan, preferring the wider scope of the European dance scene, which for the last decade has welcomed him with open arms. Ballet Frankfurt commissioned Teshigawara to choreograph for the company in the mid 1990s and since then he has gone on to choreograph for the likes of Bayern National Ballet, Netherlands Dance Theatre and the Paris Opera. His company, Karas, was formed in 1985 to search for a new form of beauty. Black Water is his most recent creation and Ferrara is presenting it as a world prmire.
