Japan’s cult choreographer Saburo Teshigawara is back in London for the first time since 2011 for the UK premiere of his hypnotic danced interpretation of Dostoyevsky’s timeless masterpiece The Idiot.

To celebrate, join us for Dance Beyond Movement, a special talk with Saburo Teshigawara and his long-time collaborator Rihoko Sato in partnership with The Japan Foundation, moderated by The Guardian dance critic Sanjoy Roy. Saburo and Rihoko will discuss the development of their movement style, their artistic vision, and their creative process.
