Saburo Teshigawara – Rihoko Sato – Karas | Tristan and Isolde

Master of body, his dance has been defined an air sculpture, made of places, time. Saburo Teshigawara is recognised not only as choreographer and dancer, but also for his qualities in the field of visual arts. At Teatro Grande di Brescia he will present his recent creation Tristan and Isolde inspired by Richard Wagner’s opera. The performance – masterfully played by Teshigawara himself and the dancer Rihoko Sato – embodies the famous story of the miserable lovers, in a continuous dialogue between the two dancers that become messengers of a sensory experience otherwise unspeakable.
