   Dance with JINEN,
 dance with all life which has been born from the universe.

Where do we really come from?
Long ago, at the time of the big bang, it seems that all forms of life composed on single and unique entity. If this is the case, hundred of millions of years have now passed, during which our respective lives have branched into different directions.
In the same way that a tree spreads into branches, the galaxy and stars have detached themselves from the trunk of the universe. The planets and Earth split off from the solar system. Furthermore, the earth, the sky and the sea have also branched and after this, plants and animals have subdivided. People, just like me, are also part of this ramification. And even variety of goods, variety of relics that human have made in the history, still more creative products from a machine civilization now are also part of this ramification. Nature and animals, people, artifacts and gods,  such as all of life equally lies ahead of this branches.
If those hundreds of millions of years have really built our body, then surely, somewhere inside of us, we should have kept a memory of when we were universe and stars, of when we were earth, of when we were stone and river, and mountain and wind and fire. And also we should have kept a memory of when we were flowers, trees, animals. Furthermore we should have kept a memory of living in relics, of living with gods mythology, of believing wings as extension of body to fly to the sky.
Open the door of these memories and let's try and dance, transformed into those sun and moon, into those four elements, into those various life and various gods. Let’s dance with memory of various relics, various machines.
Those all born from the universe was life equally. And they were called “JINEN” in ancient Japan.
Let’s dance together with all this JINEN.
Through dance, let's remember that our body was at one with Earth and the universe.
Furthermore, if the leaf that I am, coming from this branched universe, could feel, even just a little, the weight of those billions of years, then I will realize that, far from being just some simple little organisms, I myself, just like others, form the tree trunk constituting the beginning of the universe.
You are the star, you are the earth,
You are the wind, you are the river, you are the stone and fire,
You are the seed of the machine,  you are the relics, you are the myth of gods.
You are also the animal, imaginational creature.
You are the sprouting trees, shining glower.
You are all….
Through dance, the borders separating us from all those will progressively fade away. Life, under multiple shapes, is then linked to everything, and represents a dancing presence.
In the time of 6months let’s dance with all those JINEN as far as possible.

春-芽吹き、花。夏-強い日差し、雷雨。 秋-枯れ、実り。冬-氷結、死。といったイメージが湧く。
春- それは死を生に変容させる、大切な生命の転換点だろう。冬からの贈り物によって、たくさんの植物が成長し花を開く。昨年の秋に枯れた花々や草が、冬に滋養のある土に戻る。それらの土がこの春、草花に、命の贈り物をする。
夏- 夏の太陽とは、二つの顔を持つものである。一つの顔は、その強いエネルギーが思い存分に植物達を成長させる。もう一方の顔は、時に夏の太陽の持つ強すぎる力で、それら草花を枯らし、生命を失わせる。
秋- たとえ花がその力を失い枯れ始めても、その内に美が静かに潜んでいる。その美とは如何なる美なのであろうか?それは次の世代に種を引き継ぐための、死を厭わぬ生命の努力の為せる、至福の犠牲の美なのだろう。
冬- この季節は死を象徴するものである。死した草花が滋養のある土に帰る。では、草花の精霊は何処に行くのだろうか、それらの精霊もまた春への贈り物なのであろうか。

またこの契機が、過去踊らさせて頂いた、神戸大震災、ポーランド アウシュビッツの強制収容所ビルケナウ、カンボジアのポルポト軍の大規模虐殺キリングフィールドでの追悼の踊り、レバノンのパレスチナキャンプでの爆撃を恐れるスラムの中の幼稚園児とのワークショップや追悼踊り等、僕がじねん舞踏として再出発し踊って来たここ二十五年の舞踏の記憶を如何に愛として祈りとして浄化して行けるかを問う、今後も続く長い道のりのテーマの作品の一つになった事に感謝します。


また、北海道舞踏フェスティバルに深く関わっている、舞踏家 田仲ハルさんは1980年に北海道小樽の北方舞踏派で踊っていた頃の舞踏団の朋友です。1996年から3年連続で吟遊舞踏『じねん』ツアー日本全国600箇所公演の時小樽に呼んで頂いて以来20年振りの再会に、またプロデューサーの森嶋さん両氏に感謝します。
京都では、舞踏家由良部正美さんに企画して頂いています。40年近く前の北方舞踏派時代にお会いして以来、私が関西で住むことになって以来、時には共に踊らさせて頂き、長きに渡って尊敬する先輩舞踏家として、また友人としてお世話になっています。 公演をするスペースALS-Dは、神経難病ALS(筋萎縮性側索硬化症)患者の甲谷匡賛の住居に併設されたスペースで、由良部正美さんの稽古場としても使われています。帰国する度に此処で何回も此処で踊らせて頂いています。由良部さん甲谷さん両氏に感謝します。
