As eight members of Suddenly collective, we are given the possibility to invite the Japanese dancer and choreographer Natsuko Tezuko to a residency in Tanzfabrik Berlin. For 20 years, Natsuko has been researching a way of dancing she calls “spontaneous movement”. Through deep observation of her own body, paradoxical tasks and her practice of letting movement arise from observation, Natsuko has developed several works that investigate how societally generated norms of behavior as well as histories of modernization and westernization block “spontaneous movement”. Her dance emerges from pressure and resistance and creates spaces of physical and emotional resilience. Starting from her piece Anatomical Experiment 6 – Departure from distorted image, Natsuko transmits her artistic methods and topics to the collective.
