Akira Kasai has created structured choreography from a variety of perspectives on the topic of “Blackboard Drawings,” a text detailing the drawings of Rudolf Steiner. The pieces will be performed by specialized eurythmists who have been training for movement to words and music for ten years or more. This performance will shine the spotlight on the connection between the human body and words. It is a trial centered on Steiner’s text that attempts to create a comprehensive theater space bringing together words, movement, colors and music.
Akira Kasai had close relations to Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno in 1960s and presented many solo shows. From 1979 to 1985 he studied abroad in Germany and researched the anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner and Eurhythmy. In 1994, he came back to the theater with his performance in Seraphita – Kagami no Seiki wo Motsu Watashi no Onna. From that time, he has continued to energetically perform many works in Japan and abroad.
