Dancer: Shizuno Nasu
SHIZUNO NASU is born in Osaka, Japan and began her classical ballet training at the age of three. She was chosen as an exchange student with the Bolshoi Ballet at the age of seven and made her debut as a professional dancer at the age of 19. She has won
high praise in Europe, Asia and the U.S.A. When she asked herself what is the very starting point of dance, she started exploring ancient Japanese mythological dances. She undertook a multi-year pilgrimage, performing throughout Japan, deepening a spirit of mai, the dance, and refining her skills on art of mai, and thereby created her unique method of mai “the Spiral Vision”. In 2002, she moved to Island of Hawaii from New York. In Island she created a great number of stages that express her passion and inspiration in “nature” and “movement” with her unique mai attuned to the rhythms of Mother Nature beyond the range of West and East. Shizuno says “Spirit of Nature can be seen in the movement of wind, the stark land of Pele, and in the interweaving energies of opposites, yin and yang... We must heal the earth with renewed spirit and awareness of the interconnectedness of all beings and elements.” In 2010, she established her “Nasu Shizuno Meditation Studio” in Volcano of Island as a base of creation. She has set to work on a new dance method “Origin of Life,” being inspired by the majestic nature of Island of Hawaii, receiving “the Moment of Precious Life” from four elements: Fire, Water, Wind and Earth, and refining her identity with her purity toward dance. Through dance, she contributes to international exchange that bridges
culture between Hawaii and Japan.
Dancing with the ELEMENTS
Gazing into the red flame of Kilauea Volcano,
Watching the star filled sky of Mauna Kea
I focus on the root of the "Living Earth."
The basic natural elements are
Fire, Water, Wind (Air) and Earth
I express these elements, my essence of dance through my physical body.
And now, in the same way these four Nature Elements harmonize
and balance each other,
I would like to explore this, as shared human consciousness.
This process will support the future of our "Earth" and "Life."
