Real Dance Super Sentai performance company proposes in berliner gallery -able two videos showing the dance work of Body Weather practitioners Frank Van de Ven and Oguri.
Both were part in the 1990’s of Min Tanaka’s performance company Maijuku - then prolonged their experience into their own dance work, still sharing expressivity, radicality and a strong feeling of here and now.
art film by Nathalie Michel, with Frank Van de Ven
A programme having been previously established for the order, duration and the intensity of each part in the different spaces, dancer Frank van de Ven explores and reacts organically to sonic, tactile, meteorological and visual elements of this old disabled factory. The editing respects the chronology of the shooting.
documentary by Morleigh Steinberg, with Oguri.
2008 - 70′
Prior to moving from Japan to America, acclaimed Butoh dancer Oguri had never seen a desert. When he encountered the unforgiving vastness of the California deserts, Oguri was inspired to undertake a four-year personal and artistic journey, during which he created more than fifty original site-specific dances within and around Joshua Tree National Park. Dancer, choreographer and filmmaker Morleigh Steinberg observes and documents Oguri as he explores the literal and psychic borderlands between the body and the landscape.
