Absolute Zero

Saburo Teshigawara Kei Miyata

With his dance company Karas, Saburo Teshigawara is searching for a "new form of beauty": "There are no ideals in dance. Dance is not simple. But dance can be simple. And it can once again be complex. What is important is clarity. Clear questions have force." In the middle part of Absolute Zero Teshigawara dances elementary figures that develop into a complex and virtuoso choreography. His partner Kei Miyata continues the soli to hints of a pas de deux in space. Absolute Zero goes in search of perfect stillness. "He moves like liquefied sculpture, his bantam body spinning in and out of unseenfolds of air with sharp, spasmodic grace. Both abstract and emotionally resonant, a powerful combination." The Times
