3D video installation "DOUBLE DISTRICT"


Reviews from the latest Glass Tooth tour! Glass Tooth made its European premiere last February with huge success.

This is an abstract piece of great visual beauty... Aestheticism triumphs at each step. Speed, fluidity, extreme rigor... each gesture has overwhelming force....,It is this fluctuation between violence and delicateness, this constant transition from one atmosphere to the next, that creates an impact, hypnotizes the audience amazed by the troop's virtuosity.
Le Figaro 16-17/2/08 Marion Thébaud



Flawless in plastic art terms, physically intelligent, silent – aside from the moans of the dancers, this piece, balanced between men and women, impartial, is a jewel. No need for a diamond, each tiny piece of glass reflects the light.
Liberation 16-17/2/08 Marie-Christine Vernay



Glass Tooth is a wonder, a finely cut diamond, a precious work: sparing in light but prolific in energy, Teshigawara's dance seems to respond to unseen rules. Both fragmented and fluid, the movement is of dizzying speed... a dance that is simple, essential,that breathes. Something both earthly and aerial: a magnificent show.

The dance and the poem of glass
Glass Tooth contains more poesy than its name can indicate. It is the start of a journey, not just for the creator but also for the dancers, it is a universe of glass and incredible sound. Teshigawara’s dance is fluid without cease, and invites us to witness a ceremony in which the body plays the main role, each in individual form, as if the muscles move without a fixed order, as if all parts of the body have their own organization. He dances and draws in space. Only Saburo Teshigawara and the incredible and exceptional Rihoko Sato dive into the pool of broken glass. They lie down, jump, and dance in it, as if there were no glass, achieving a fabulous dance. The lighting design is one of the best we have seen in these days. No wonder he is also a plastic artist. But please do not confuse, this is not a spectacle, it is dance, in one of its most poetic and most beautiful forms.One of the most emotional moments was when the dancers create musical.Harmony between their movement and their own voice and echo. Everything on stage is so poetic that the spectator becomes nearly hypnotized in front of what is with no doubt such a fine piece of art.
