D.A.D. comes from Disaster And Development. This will be drawing exhibition and movement performance by binbinFactory/Satoshi Haga & Rie Fukuzawa in which the drawing will focus on the emotion which arose after the recent nuclear plant Disaster in Japan, and the performance will focus on Development. This performance will take the form of an open rehearsal, and using improvisation technique to show how the work will be developed. The movement work is very much connected with the drawings.

By challenging myself to fuse aspects of eastern and western culture Ð in dance, movement and theatre as well as psychology and spirituality Ð I have come to understand more deeply fundamental distinctions as well as unexpected commonalities among these cultures. Studying how different cultures originate, flourish and evolve through the influence of environment, geography, history and ideas intrigues and inspires my work.

In particular, I am drawn to storytelling traditions, both religious and secular, and visual and kinetic arts. Through these models, I have worked on developing a style, synthesizing western techniques of dance, mime, and drama with eastern forms, including Japanese traditional and contemporary theater and dance, Tai Chi and Balinese dance. Having integrated these influences, I am eager to continue developing, deepening and enriching my own style.

I believe making art is always a collaboration between consciousness and unconsciousness. I begin to practice with a few movement repeatedly Ðto allow the unconscious freedom to come forward, to a point when unconscious sequences inform the work and merging with consciousness, a full and nuanced dynamic performance is realized, which is both rooted in and transcends the heart of what it means to be human.

I am also fascinated by the traditional eastern art of calligraphy, its dynamics, rhythms, spiritual flow, the direction of energy, and the natural breath of the brushstroke, I am challenged to adopt the universe of calligraphy as a metaphoric setting for the creation of a work of choreography.
