Artistic Group

"Utervision Company Japan"

 ウータビジョン カンパニー ジャパン

 

2011年にフランスのアヴィニョンにて旗揚げ公演。それ以降、日・仏・英・米で作品を上演。現在6名のアーティストが国境を越えて所属。Uterは子宮、visionは視覚、先見の意。その2つを合わせた造語。全てを包み込み、生み出す集団でありたいと命名。2012年からフィギュア・シアターを作品に取り入れ、パペットと身体表現を組み合わせた作風を確立し、独創的な作品を発表し続けている。2015年から、東南アジアとの共同創作活動を開始。作品創作と並行して、2013年から表現者と一般の全ての人を対象にした創作ワークショップ「創作の時間」を開催。パペット、コミュニケーションとイマジネーションの無限の可能性を伝える。

 

Since its launch in 2011, the company has been presenting its work in and outside Japan. (Japan, France and Great Britain) 6 artists are now the member of the company : Erina Saji (director), Moe Shoji(production manager), Mari Mogi (painter) , Eri Tomoi (Actress) Masao Miki (Dance Artist) and  Yutaka Ota(Musician). Other collaborative members include Asako Kuboshima, Kaoru Hata, Chikako Shibasaki and Ayano Matsumura.

 

The name ‘Utervision’ is coined from uter (derived from Latin ’usterus’ for womb)and vision.

It represents our ambition to be a group which encompasses all branches of art and keep producing new experience for the audience. Our primary approach in producing a piece is performance, and we strive to speak to people all over the world through our work of art.

Since 2012, the company has embraced figure theatre and established their new style by combining puppetry with the physical expressions. The company continues to explore and create new works. Along with creating theatrical artworks, we also run a creative workshop, Tane no Atorie since 2013. In this workshop, we aim at spreading the joy of creative processes to a diverse range of people, regardless of their age and profession. President of Utervision, Erina Saji  also shares the methods to communicate through puppets to the participants of APEX (ASEAN Puppet Exchange) from ASEAN countries, such as Brunei, Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia and Thailand.
