[:ja]原田伸雄と舞踏靑龍會[:en]Nobuo Harada and Butoh Seiryukai[:]



舞踏家。舞踏青龍会主催。河合文化教育研究所研究員。笠井叡の『丘の麓』(1972年/客演・大野一雄)を観て舞踏の持つ劇薬のような混沌に触れ、演劇から舞踏に転身。1972年〜79年、笠井叡の主催する「天使館」に参加。独立後、1980年に東京で舞踏靑龍會を結成。現在、福岡を拠点に女装せる益荒男舞踏家として、即興舞踏を追求、芸術と反芸術の境界線上を滑稽かつシリアスに往還中。 河合文化教育研究所で主宰する身体表現教育研究会では、肉体を中心軸にして、「からだとことば」「教育と表現」といった諸問題を理論と実践の両面から追求している。


Nobuo HARADA and Butoh Seiryukai

Nobuo Harada is a dancer, founder of Butoh Seiryukai and also researcher at Kawai Institute for Culture and Education. In 1972 he was impressed by Akira Kasai’s play,“The bottom of the hill (with a guest performer, Kazuo Ohno)”, and decided to change his way to Butoh. From 1972 to 1979 he learnt Butoh in Akira’s studio, Tenshi-kan. After his independence from Tenshi-kan, he established Butoh Seiryukai in Tokyo in 1980. Now based in Fukuoka, he performs both comedy and drama, artistically and inartistically, as a manly dancer in women’s dress.
At his Body Expression Education Workshop in Kawai Institute for Culture and Education, topics like “body and language” and “education and expression” using the actual body are discussed theoretically and practically.
