The head-on clash between“body and voice”put to special music in a production by two talented figures from the world of contemporary dance!
One of dancer Kim Ito’s projects in recent years has been his“large chorus of 100 people without music,” in which Ito is conductor for a choral performance with 100 people. Unbound by musical conventions like rhythm and harmony, these freestyle vocal performances incorporating both words and movement have drawn many participants attracted to the project’s moveable feast aspect, with choral performances freely utilizing locations like plazas and other open public spaces, hilltops, breakwaters and ships.
Meanwhile Maki Morishita, a key figure in contemporary dance who used to be a dancer for Ito’s Kagayaku Mirai dance company, has attracted attention for her work focusing on choral elements. Recently she has been the talk of the cultural world for moves like recruiting photographer Naoki Ishikawa to choreograph one of the movements from her solo work, “Dancing all movements of Beethoven’s ‘Destiny’ Symphony No. 5.” Morishita followed this by developing new horizons of expression for dance and chorus with her own company Morishita Stand’s production, “Dancing all movements of Beethoven’s Symphony No 9.”Working together with passionate intensity on the concept of “body and voice and music,” Kim Ito and Morishita transcend their onetime teacher-student relationship to realize this much-anticipated collaboration, in which they challenge each other head-on as talented artists at the forefront of the dance world.
