Hirokazu Hinagata's Danceable LIFE Vol. 1
I met the dance and found my whereabouts
Hirokazu Hinagata (dancer and choreographer)
As various things digitize, what is the pleasure of visiting the theater? I think it is a "live feeling".
That day, at that time, I can not taste the place I need to go to the place. It disappears every moment and disappears. It can be left as a picture, but it will be difficult to convey the "air" of that moment.
When it comes to dancing, it's a world that uses the body to express, so it's difficult to keep dancing in the same style as you get older. But that's a matter of course. That's why I want you to feel the momentary moment that is disappearing very much with your eyes, ears, skin, and pores, and I think that it will remain in the viewers.
The reason why I began to dance is not to say "I want to express something" or "I want to stand on the stage". I have been introverted since I was a child, and I have entered a university where I learn how to act from my aspirations to express, but my teacher is only angry. I was not able to do basic lines and acting well, and I was completely lost in confidence. There, my seniors took me to the jazz dance studio, and that was exactly the experience of "from the eye".
That is probably because the dance was "a world where words were excluded". Although I could not say the line well, expressing myself with dance was a lot of fun and I felt that I could find my own existence value for the first time. ThatWell, I found a place where I was.
I decided to make dance work when I graduated from university, but when I was about 25 years old, people hit the wall. It's no good just to like and dance. So I went to NY, but here I experienced a bigger setback. The level is too different. I can not catch up on the level where I take lessons hard, work many times more than people, and get better little by little. Originally I was stiff and slow to dance. Since it is Japanese originally and it is different from the framework, I felt the limit in pursuing Western dance.
What does it take for me to be on the stage side by side with them?
And it was the world of "sum" such as Noh, Kabuki and Butoh that attracted me.
The Western world is an expanding image, as the word "Andre = Outward" appears in ballet terms. On the other hand, the world of Japan is an image of falling and condensing. It was a persuasive world that fell in my mind.
Since then, I have been searching for stoic expressions that have a mix of "static and dynamic" in styles such as independent performances. Of course, there is a song like THE CONVOY, a dance, and the world of entertainment with a play is my starting point, so I would like to pursue it in the future.
If there is an opportunity, let's meet at the theater next time!
