In the light of intimate meeting, this research was curious about what
kind of resonance we could find if one dancer was to meet one on one with
one person of the audience. Questioning the depth of this possible meeting,
what could come out of this intimacy, how deep could the dance go, how
honesty comes when meeting in this closeness. Who is the performer if there
is only two people meeting. What are the limits of each person in this
meeting? Those are few questions we had in mind, that where for us a motor
and a frightening challenge. During the performance, beautiful meetings,
moments of intimate resonance. Thank you to the generous dancers and audience
for this great red light night.
Night throws a dark blue blanket over the
body, as if to keep it safe.
There is no such hiding place.
strange creatures enter
songs of another world tremble into the bones
of the helpless body
no story, no names, no time...
no logic can be applied here
What to do?
Listen through the hidden skin
Listen most carefully
to what life wants to share
While falling into endless night

Please enjoy it!
The last stage of creation is to integrate all subbodies-cobodies during
these three months.
Most of students could integrate total one hour subbodies-cobodies.
Next is just to ask subbody to integrate all of them with finding the best
If it will succeed we can dance the whole self.
But always thinking channel comes out and disturbs it by limited story
in the last creative stage.
It is pity to limit the so rich resouse into narrow story by thought.
We need to learn to calm down thinking channel and focus on the listening
in the darkness of body.
How to break habitual thinking---next work is to challenge it bravely.
It must take time at least one year or more to get it.
