“Japanese choreographer and conjurer of visual magic.” —The Guardian (London) on Saburo Teshigawara

Don’t miss the chance to witness Japanese dancer and choreographer Saburo Teshigawara, returning after rave reviews from his Lincoln Center Festival 2006 performance of Bones in Pages. He makes a rare visit to New York to lead a visceral exploration of movement.

Miroku, a new solo work, illustrates Teshigawara’s deep focus and exceptional range, rapidly shifting from sharp, jagged gestures to liquid fluidity, providing an intimate look into the mind of its masterful creator. Time and again, he proves that his command of space and sculptural sensibility are peerless.
