DANCER / CHOREOGRAPHER / ARTIST
As an artist, the work of KEISUKE SUGAWARA is based on the landscapes that I own.
It's created with my own experiences, stimuli gained abroad, delusions and the images from other arts.
I like the variable brittleness and invariant strength of people, the beauty of that interval.
For me, the definition of “Creation” is how I see myself / how I face 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 all the Darkness is the Contrast to lightness.
The weakness of ourselves is always with us. And often we think of the weakness negatively.
But it is just the state of being and a part of ourselves.
I see the hope and beauty in the dark, it exists as a narrow straight line like the light at the shore.
An empty balance on the scale of Positive and Negative.
Only Stillness and Emptiness drive people. The landscape I create is the tool that gives people the opportunity of pondering and facing themselves.
Body, Space and Relation
I embrace how all the elements lead me and give me reasons to react to them.
I collaborate with various artists to develop experimental approaches beyond the dance field.
