Yosuke Kusano (Guest Dancer)

Born in Japan in 1986, he moved to Germany to attend Hamburg Ballet School at the age of 16. After graduating in 2005, he joined the Hamburg Ballet Company, and in 2009 he moved to Oslo to work with the Norwegian National Ballet for a year.

In 2010, he joined Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, directed by Ed Wubbe, and after three years he returned to Germany to work with different companies such as Stadttheater Bremerhaven, Theater Regensburg, and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch (as a guest dancer for The Rite of Spring).

Since 2017, he has been freelancing, searching what dance means to people and to himself. In 2017/18 he worked for the first time as a guest dancer with Scottish Dance Theatre in Fleur Darkin and Jemima Levick’s The Lover.
