The Dance of the Sun – work in progress

januari 27, 2013
Ami Skånberg Dahlstedt receives a dance lesson from Nishikawa Senrei Sensei
Choreographer Ami Skånberg Dahlstedt takes us on a voyage to Japan where dance has a long and significant history. The dance has its roots in a mythological story, in which the Sun Goddess gets angry and hides in a rock cave. The world plunges into darkness and cold. However, the Godess of laughter lurs her out with some energetic and crazy dancing and finally the light and warmth returns. The story is the basis for both classical and contemporary dance and theater; Noh, Kabuki, Nihon Buyo and Butoh. We must keep dancing until the sun comes out. The film also invites us to meet Nishikawa Senrei, a very special profile in Kyoto. We will see parts of Ami´s lesson in traditional Japanese dance and also meet contemporary performers in Kyoto, the former capital of Japan. Filmed among cherry bossoms through the lense of Folke Johansson´s stable camera.
