このたびイギリスを拠点とする創造集団・ネオンダンスによる「パズル・クリーチャー」の世界初公演が9月15日&16日の2日間限定で上郷クローブ座にて行われます。同作品は「越後妻有アートトリエンナーレ2018」の注目作品として早くも国内外で話題ですが、「パズル・クリーチャー(Puzzle Creature)」とは荒川修作+マドリン・ギンズの造語であり、その世界観を表す重要なキーワードの一つでもあります。

 

”私たちは一体だれであり、何の種であるのでしょう? Puzzle creatures to ourselves, 私たちは解明し得ない世界の訪問者なのです” とは、荒川+ギンズによる『建築する身体』の一節です。

 

この世界に私たちが存在するということは何を意味するのでしょうか。そして、「パズル・クリーチャー」とは??? ネオン・ダンスはこの広範で多様な解釈がなされる問いをテーマに、美しく、魅力溢れる作品を創り、私たちを忘れがたい探査への旅へと誘ってくれることでしょう。

 

日本国内ではわずか2日間の公演、みなさまぜひお誘い合わせの上、荒川+ギンズの世界の初の舞台化作品にお立ち会いください。

Introduction

国際的に活動するダンスカンパニーが、アーティストの荒川修作+マドリン・ギンズの世界からインスピレーションを得て制作した舞台作品。立体的な音楽と照明、身体の知覚を刺激する装置で、観客と演者が一つの空間を創り上げる。荒川+ギンズの創造の源であるヘレン・ケラーに倣い、ダンサーたちは日英の手話を駆使し、光と音が言葉でない言語を織りなす。視覚聴覚をはじめ身体的精神的ハンディキャップを持つ鑑賞者もそうでない者も、それぞれの身体で作品を感じつつ、いつの間にか演者との交信・交流がはじまってゆく。
