DANCER / CHOREOGRAPHER / ARTIST
As an artist the work of KEISUKE SUGAWARA is based on the landscapes that I own. Created from my own experiences, stimuli gained abroad, delusions and the images from other arts. And I like the variable brittleness and invariant strength of people, the beauty of that interval.
To me, the definition of “Creation” is how do I see myself / how do I face to my own weakness.
Fear / Anger / Sadness / Loneliness / Desire,
these statements give me the Fragmental ideas and landscapes. Based on them, my work is usually full of darkness and contradiction as an appearance. But the all Darkness is the Contrast to lightness.
The weakness of ourselves is always with us. And often we think the weakness in negative. But it is just the state of being and a part of ourselves. I see the hope and beauty in the dark, they exist as a narrow Straight line like at the light at the shore. An empty balance on the scale of Positive and Negative.
Only Stillness and emptiness drives people. Because what I create is just the tool that gives them the opportunities of pondering and facing to their selves.
Body, Space and Relation
I am enjoying that how all the materials lead me / give me the reason to react to them. I do collaboration with musicians and artists besides working in dance field.
