Saburo Teshigawara was born in Tokio in 1953. In his performances the artist creates rooms of light and sounds, objects and bodys, costumes and movements. Under the hand of Saburo Teshigawara rooms are transformed to sculptures, closely related to the quality of time – as "each moment possesses its own time". Together with Kei Miyata he founded the company Karas and since the eighties he has also presented his pieces in Europe and the USA and is enthusiastically applauded.
William Forsythe invited the artist to create two pieces for his Frankfurt Ballet: White Clouds Under the Heels, Part I and II (1994/95). In a co-production with the Theater am Turm (TAT) in Frankfurt he presented his sensational productions Here to Here and I was real Documents, both pieces of great visual power and stringency, typical of all his avant-garde creations.
Saburo Teshigawara makes films, takes part in art exhibitions, teaches; by now his visual images take shape almost everywhere in the world.
For the Bavarian State Ballet he created in 1999 his adaption of Le sacre du printemps, basing for the first time his creation on a big live-orchester-music. In 2003 he came back in order to continue his work on Sacre with the dancers of the Bavarian State Ballet.
