Hirayama and Yanagimoto created the piece with the distinctive score by Stravinsky played by two pianists.
The piece can be also seen at New National Theatre Tokyo as a part of Stravinsky Evening programme in December of this year.
Moriyama Kaiji’s "Yoroboshi" is a unique dance piece performed by two dancers, Moriyama himself and co-choreograhper Kagaya Kaori, along with Noh actor Tsumura Reijiro who is one of the designated holders of Important Intangible Cultural Property of Japan. Traditional Japanese “Noh” and contemporary dance merge in perfect harmony to create a beautiful dancing poem.
