Tatsumi Hijikata Archives words of thank you
My name is Ana Rita Teodoro, I’m a portugueses dance artist. I’m interested in Butoh for many years and my first contact with the Tatsumi Hijikata Archives was in 2008. This year of 2015 with the scholarship from Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian I came back to Japan, April and May to go deeper in the butoh dance and work specifically with Yoshito Ohno at the Kazuo Ohno Dance Studio.
I was lively guided into Hijikata Tatsumi world at the Tatsumi Hijikata Archives. I notice a big difference from my last visit in 2008 for 2015. There were more materials available and a bigger team could dedicate time for me. I do appreciate very much the fact that the Tatsumi Hijikata Archives put me in contact with different Butoh artists and even put available his meeting room for my interviews.
The main goals for my visit was to see all Hijikata dance video pieces, make interview with Morishita san, look at the butoh-fu notebook and finally, trough the library, get in touch with other Butoh researchers around the world. Being at the Archives and having a first contact other opportunities and ideas appeared that were important for my research and understanding of Butoh, that was the interview with Waguri Yukio-san and looking at the costume sketch drawings by Hijikata and Yoko Ashikawa.
I just have to thank you to all team of Tatsumi Hijikata Archives. (Ana Rita Teodoro)
