Pijin Neji was a member of Dairakudakan, a butoh company from 2000 to 2004. He studied under Akaji Maro and danced in all of the company’s main productions while he was a member. After leaving Dairakudakan, he began his career as choreographer/dancer. His main works are solo works and choreographies in which he doesn’t dance. In “Noroi(The curse) ”presented in Lab 20 in the ST spot, the solo work featured and expanded on Pijin Neji’s physical characteristics. In his following choreography “The pendulum”, he attempted to visualize a body beyond the physical body through the choreography where individualities of the dancers were trimmed down to the minimum. In 2006, he appeared in “ASOBU”, a piece by French choreographer Josef Nadj, and toured in Europe and Japan including the Avignon Festival. In addition, he has performed in the dance group with Megumi Kamimura, Natsuko Tezuka and Kuri Suzuki. In 2008, he created solo“NJPJN” for the festival of the Orleans National Choreographic Center TRAVERSES. He received the Yokohama Dance Collection EX2011 Jury Prize(Grand Prix), and his piece “the acting motivation”,a self-documentary based on Neji’s own experience with part-time work, won Festival/Tokyo F/T AWARD.
