Tsuyoshi Shirai (Choreographer, Dancer)

Tsuyoshi Shirai founded the company Study of Life Works BANETO in 1998. He has received the Bagnolet International Choreography Award (2000) and the Toyota Next Generation Choreography Award (2006). As a dancer, he has appeared in Hong Kong based choreographer Yuri NG’s Devil’s Story, Kim Ito’s Forbidden Colors at the Setagaya Public Theatre, and a performance of the John Cage piece Apartment House 1776 in collaboration with Arditti Quartet. He has created works including still life (performed at Engeki Keikaku 2009 and Kyoto Experiment 2011) and true (2007), a collaboration with Dumb Type members including Takayuki Fujimoto. Actively collaborating with a wide range of artists, he creates performances that do not adhere to existing stage conventions.
