Contrabassist Tetsu Saitoh and dancer Jean Sasportes, long active in the Wuppertal Dance Company of Germany led by choreographer Pina Bausch, are taking a session tour around Japan. The intersection of dance and sound that engenders an analog, flesh corporeity in the performances of a musician and dancer who have been in search of their own realities presents its audiences with a model of sincere collaboration.
