Junnosuke Tada first directed Re/Play in 2011 with his theater group, Tokyo Deathlock. It explores the intent and meaning of re-production through bodily repetition of physical movement. As a re-making of a theatrical production, this version replaces the actors with eight leading contemporary dancer-choreographers, many of whom have received multiple awards for their own creations. Using pop music, the performers dance until they collapse in exhaustion – and then they get up and do it again, each choreographer-dancer taking a turn at their own approach to the project. In their collaboration with Tada’s direction, the very foundation and meaning of dance is undermined, theater as a format is subverted, and a truly fresh perspective on dance and performance emerges.
There will be a bar set up on site during the run of performances at Steep Slope Studio so the artists and audience can meet and exchange ideas and impressions after the performance.

Junnosuke Tada

Born in 1976, Tada formed his company “Tokyo Deathlock,” in 2001. His direction focuses on the concept that “manifestation equals phenomenon” and that this manifistation includes a performer’s body, the audience, and the space. With his way of unconventional approach to the framework of established theater, each of his projects generates intriguing discussion both within Japan and abroad. He has been the artistic director of Kirari Fujimi Cultural Centre of Fujimi City since 2010.
