Birth of "My Castle"

Germany's Wuppertal and Düsseldorf Autism Associations have decided to host a dance theater * as a project to commemorate their 40th anniversary.・We welcomed Mr. Laurent Sasportas. Jan spent more than a year observing and understanding their movements and behaviors in our inpatient autism facility. The artist team for this project was born with the participation of wonderful Japanese artists, including former dancers of the Pina Bausch Dance Company and musician/composer Toru Saito, who share similar visions. This work was created with hints from the characteristic gestures and movements of autistic people, and aims to deepen understanding of autism while expressing different characteristics and difficult-to-see parts. increase. The gestures, movements, and music of the dancers make it possible to grasp the world of autism from a new perspective, and understanding the different characteristics of the autism leads to a bridge between the two, which has a didactic aspect. and appeal to many people. Since its premiere in 2016, it has been performed in Germany (Cologne, Bonn, Wuppertal) in 2017 and 2018, and the audience was always full. It is a great honor and joy for the whole team to be able to perform in Berlin, Wuppertal, and Tokyo this summer after many cancellations due to the coronavirus pandemic.

*Dance theater: Performing arts that removes the boundaries between dance and theater, as typified by Pina Bausch
