As one of the most influential Japanese creators of his time, Saburo Teshigawara renews on stage with his accomplice and dancer Rihoko Sato for The Idiot. Not really an adaptation, more a reinterpretation..

“I knew it would be impossible to create a choreography taken from such a novel”, Saburo Teshigawara said about Dostoievski’s The Idiot. “But this impossibility has been key to approach and create something completely new. A dance that only exists in the present.” A duo transforming each voice, each cry or murmur into movement. It is not however question of a narrative dance, but more the idea of recreating a body language. The gestural grammar developed and magnified by Rihoko Sato and Saburo Teshigawara are rich in tempo, virtuoso and slow motion. The result is a labyrinth of sensations in which one can get lost… or find oneself. The Idiot, after major pieces such as Flexible Silence, Glass Tooth or Miroku, testifies once again to Saburo Teshigawara’s creativity. Whether it be with group or duo pieces, he uses the body as an amazing artistic laboratory.
