Ryyuichi Fujimura

I am an independent dance artist based in Sydney. Since the mid 1990’s, I have studied contemporary dance technique as well as improvisation and choreography in Australia and overseas. 


Over the last fifteen years, I have collaborated with both emerging and established artists/companies in various dance, theatre, opera, site-specific performance and film projects including Xavier le Roy, Tino Sehgal, Asad Raza, Vicki Van Hout, Jim Sharman, Force Majeure, De Quincey Co., La Fura dels Baus, Clockfire Theatre co. and Flightpath Theatre. 


I began my choreographic practice in 2013. In collaboration with Kate Sherman, I created two site-specific performance works (Under Harry’s Circumstances in 2014 and Under Different Circumstances in 2013). I have also created and performed three solo works (Fall! Falter!! Dance!!! in 2021, How I Practice My Religion in 2017 and How Did I Get Here? in 2015). I have toured internationally with these solos to Finland (2017) and Taiwan (2018). 


In 2020, I performed in The Night Parade of One Hundred Goblins (Clockfire Theatre co.) for Sydney festival, We, the Lost Company, an adaptation (Clockfire Theatre co.) for Sydney Fringe and AEON (directed by Justin Shoulder) for Liveworks. In 2021, I choreographed a solo to be performed by Chris Wade for In Situ (Dance Makers Collective and Future Makers), an official event for Sydney Festival 2021, and performed in Fishy Tales co-directed by Vashti Hughes and Diane Busutill in May.
