The Last Man

Kasai Mitsutake
Kasai studied Butoh with KASAI Akira (his father) and dance with YAMAZAKI Kota. He appears frequently in other choreographers' work. His varied choreography expresses his own world view, while incorporating the essence of various styles of dance. In 2009, he was awarded “the Japanese Government Overseas Study Program for Artists” to study in New York.

KIM Nam-jin (Artistic Director, Dance Theatre CHANG)
Namjin Kim was born in Pusan, South Korea. He started as an actor before he was introduced to dance. He was fascinated by movement languages that human bodies can create and started dancing. He moved to France to dance with Cie Corinne Lanselle, Cie Jackie Taffanel etc. in 1995. He was the first Korean male dancer to work with the C.C.N.R.B.(Catherine Diverres, 1998-2002), and with Les Ballets C de le B in Belgium (2002-2006). Kim continues his dance career all over Europe from France, to Germany, UK, Italy, Spain, Norway, Denmark and Sweden and worked with Wim Vandekeybus, Ohad Naharin, Rui Horta, Meg Stuart and especially Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
Kim returned to Korea in 2006 and set up Dance Theatre Chang to create dance works that are forward and realistic; and to combine dance with theatre to reach out to social reality. Dance Theatre CHANG creates unique Korean contemporary dance theatre works which show Kim’s powerful, yet calm movements.

Born in Hunan, Luo Fan began studying Chinese dance in 1994. He was awarded a scholarship in 2001 to study modern dance at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. In 2003, Luo was awarded the Asian Cultural Council Scholarship and received modern dance training and participated in dance festivals in the US. He joined CCDC in the same year. Luo was awarded the 1st Place and Excellence Award in Division of Modern Professional Soloists in International Dance Competition in Greece in 2007 and received a special scholarship to the US.
