Obsession - Un Chien A is the new production by the internationally renowned Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara. The duet, which is interpreted by Teshigawara and the equally fascinating dancer Rihoko Sato, is inspired by the surrealist short film Un chien Andalou based on a script by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí. Musically constructed around sound compositions, the Prélude from Richard Wagner\'s Tristan und Isolde and tango music, in the constitution of the performers, the counterpart of impossible desires and inner conflict formulates itself in an impressive way. After a course in classical ballet and fine art, since the mid-1980s Saburo Teshigawara has developed an artistic language in his works, which contains a new orientation for contemporary dance in Japan and beyond: in the interaction of diverse artistic elements - music, movement, fine art, film - the choreograph and his Karas company create poetic spaces that underlie the originality of his language of movement, with an impressive sense of composition and a high sculptural sensitivity.
