Profile

Saburo Teshigawara
Saburo Teshigawara began his unique creative career in 1981 in his native Tokyo, after studying plastic arts and classic ballet. He founded KARAS in 1985 in order to pursue new methods of expression that could not be found within the boundaries of existing dance. Since then, he and KARAS have been invited every year to perform in major international cities around the world.
In addition to his solo performances and his work with KARAS, Teshigawara has also received international attention as a choreographer/director. He has been commissioned by many international ballet companies, such as the Paris Opera, to create repertoire pieces for the company.
Besides the continuous workshops at the KARAS studio in Tokyo, he has been involved in many educational projects. He continues to encourage and inspire young dancers with his creative work.
