This performance combining dance and music features choreography for the Ayano Yokoyama-led dance company lal banshees’ first male dancer, as well as specially written music and live performance by rock band SuiseiNoboAz.
Creation of the music proceeded simultaneously with the creation of the dance component to give audiences a simulated experience of an era when dance would have run alongside music.
The work was created by reconsidering minor customs mixed with indigenous Japanese folk beliefs, as well as by reexamining countless different individuals, non-human perspectives, and the question of what the body and the soul constitute as vessels.
