Co. Yamada Un, a 12-year-old dance company, is the producer of this new performance.
In 2004, the company created “one-piece” performed by five female dancers, which toured around the world and received much aclaim. Ten years after this success, it re-created this work designed for seven male dancers. Satoru Wono composed new pieces of music for this performance, sets and costumes were changed, and the entire cast was changed to men.
In recent years, Co. Yamada Un’s performances have been based on novels and music. Yet for this project, an original dance, titled Jusanya (13 Nights), was created for the 13 dancers for the first time in four years.
