The inexhaustibly creative Japanese dancer and choreographer Kenzo Kusuda is a unique phenomenon in the world of dance. His performances and dance style are personal, poetic, and often breathtakingly intense. With Flora, Lucifer, Nebula, Dew, Kenzo presents a new program for which he collaborated with four completely different dancers hailing from China, India, Bolivia, and Senegal. Moved by natural phenomena and memories, he created a solo with each dancer; together, these will be presented in one full-length program.

Lucifer (Choreography: Kenzo Kusuda / Performance: Revanta Sarabhai)
The Latin word ‘Lucifer’ means bearer of light. It’s the name of the Fallen Angel, but also of the morning star that lights the earth at daybreak. Like man, a flame also consumes oxygen as nourishment for life energy. Together with Indian dancer Revanta Sarabhai, Kenzo opened a dialogue with fire. It dances and moves, it brings light to darkness and literally sheds light on others and yourself. However, it also shows how far removed we are from each other. Was that Lucifer’s diabolical intent? Or does light reveal the world’s beauty?

A full video of Lucifer is available on Kenzo Kusuda’s Youtube channel here.
