We are proud and happy to announce the Japan Tour by artists Ryuzo Fukuhara and Gregor Kamnikar between 1 st Feb and 25 th Feb 2011. The tour comprises of a premiere, performances, workshops and open discussions.

The aim of the Japan Tour is to present and share the work of Ryuzo, Gregor and four-year project “Ecollectiv” (“Tkolektivnos”) devised by Collective Federacija & core members of the “Ecollectiv” project; to meet Japanese artists and collectives to experience, discuss and share their work; and, last but not least, to make a next step in creating conditions for intense collaboration between European and Japanese artists.

Welcome to any of the events. Soon the site www.federacija.net will host also the blog of the tour. Please stay tuned.

Feb 3rd
“A.Void.”

 

the (world) premiere
A site-specific duet
Conceived, choreographed and performed by Ryuzo Fukuhara and Gregor Kamnikar based on Samuel Beckett’s text Worstward Ho
Arranged by NPO Wakayama Arts and Culture Support Society

When we translate a text into other language, usually we try to follow the original meaning of the text or to find the intention of the author of the text. However, Beckett’s “Worstward Ho” is refusing these attempts by its original text. Thus, I attempt to translate “Worstward Ho” by following the hypothesis that the right translation of “Worstward Ho« is the mistranslation. This is the process of a attempted translation by Ryuzo: Original (English) – Japanese – English – Slovenian
