NOBUYOSHI ASAI started practicing street dance at his young age in Japan and at an international level. Wishing to search deeper into dance that expresses collective human issues, he joined for a year the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre in New York. Back in Japan, he created his own company, Sudbury306, where young artists joined their creative researches giving international performances. In order to go deeper into movement demanding a complex and profound interior approach, he joined the Japanese butoh company Dairakudakan on 2005, before becoming permanent dancer at the butoh company Sankai Juku with whom he gave performances all over the world. In parallel, on 2011, the Pola Art Foundation provided him grants to pursue his choreographic and artistic researches in Berlin, so as to weave links between japanese cultural background and occidental contemporary creative movements. He also spent a year in Tel Aviv, attached at the Batsheva Company and collaborating with the alternative artistic environment of Clipa Theater. Striving to embrace a freelance career - in ordrer to explore further more dance, choreography but also collaborations/creations on photography and plastic arts.
