Why do we forget old memories? I remember when I was reading a book, I forgot my life. That’s why we try to keep memories that we don’t want to forget as photographs, entrust them to letters, or use our five senses to remember them.
Yuya Fujinami, based in Berlin, is a freelance contemporary dancer. He dances as if he was filling a page in his body, connecting his childhood mysterious experiences and memories in his early childhood.

First of all, please introduce yourself.

It has been 4 years as a dancer living in Berlin. Born in Saitama, I studied dance and gymnastics and studied dance in Rome at the age of 14. After that, I graduated from a German ballet school founded by choreographer John Neumeier.

Please tell us how you started dancing.

My parents are a martial arts family. My mother teaches us Tai Chi, and sister is a very good player.
I learned gymnastics and jazz dance in my parents’ education since childhood, but I didn’t start dancing in my own will. So I didn’t expect to live as a dancer like now. From such a trivial opportunity, I became more interested in contemporary dance that allowed me to express myself more freely in my teens. Now I am very proud of my profession, and now I can’t quit.

Please tell us about your favorite dancers and artists you like in Berlin.

Sasha Walz is a choreographer from Germany. Her project is acrobatic and intense, and there is a sense of presence that allows the dancers to breathe into the audience.
Constanza Macras is another choreographer who is also active in Berlin. She is very interesting because she uses an ordinary child in Africa as a dancer and has a strong commitment to stage placement.
And as a musician, Niklas Paschburg is a great pianist and artist.

What are the recommended spots in Berlin?

Actually, I’m living in Berlin in long years but I don’t know much about popular spots. “MARS Küche & Bar” in Wedding is a cafe and bar that I often go with friends from Berlin. The interior of the MARS is based on furniture by a designer, Piet Hein Eek, who was also talked about in collaboration with IKEA, but it is a modern, calming place surrounded by plants. Originally, this building was used as a “former crematorium” until about 20 years ago, but now it is interesting that it is a cafe bar loved by locals and ladies.
