Shintaro Oue works in collective and collaborative processes to enable greater equality and an open atmosphere which allows for broader discussions throughout the creative team. The dancers are titled co-choreographers and the performances are held in simplicity.
WHAT DOES THE SITE RESIDENCY ENABLE YOU TO DO?
For me, it means an open place where I can meet other companies and people. Its also a good way to get away from home and work in a new environment. Having this residency is very special for my working situation and I hope to experience something that I have never experienced before.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT?
I will be in Amsterdam this summer, and will be working on a piece for Japan in September that will also be a part of a larger performance piece in 2010, when I probably will have a residency in Vilhelmina in Finland.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO FURTHER DEVELOP DURING YOUR RESIDENCY AT SITE?
Id like to develop my company and Im thinking about starting up my own business or to seek other alternatives for the way the company is organized. SITE allows me the chance to be given further guidance in this process and helps me keep my feet on the right path.
