“MeMe” is Co. Ruri Mito’s first full evening performance. There is a spirit of Mito’s solo piece, and she transmitted her qualities and attitude to her dancers selected at the audition, just like the title “MeMe” comes from the word “meme.” Mito created this sensitive and complex piece like weaving cloth using various colors of threads or like taking time to complete a puzzle piece.
