Height of Sky

“I believe dance must preserve a relationship between the body and the earth. I was not born a farmer, nor did I know intimately any native traditional dance forms. In my unique experience with farming, daily life allowed me to question and develop the relationship between my body and the land and climate. I left the farming village thirteen years ago, yet it still lives in me as the source of my creativity. There are no deserts in Japan. The word “desert” has a negative connotation that is used to illustrate non-existence and death. When I visited Joshua Tree National Park for the first time, I perceived a reticent land – a vast, rich language.”
– Oguri
