For many audiences, who often come to see the series of NNTT’s contemporary dance productions with guest choreographer and performers, it would be quite natural to be wondering, “Can’t we see contemporary works, danced by classical ballet dancers from NNTT’s company?” So, why not? Here is our new dance project, collaborated with NNTT dancers, “Dance to the Future”, featuring three contemporary ballet/dance choreographers’ recent works.
In “Snow Lotus” by Iguchi Hiroyuki, a former member of NNTT Ballet Company, the ensemble of nine women danced fluidly to J.S.Bach’s concerto. Reflected all through the ballet are the images of a spirit taking its path to the purification.
“The Last Era of Cinderella” choreographed by Nohmi Kenshi is a piece adopted to the percussive electronic compositions by Patricia Dallio and Takemoto Jin. Nohmi humorously points out the nature of relationship between man and woman could be no longer the same as it used to be… “the Cinderella” today dress up with gorgeous and sexy outfits, emphasizing their feminine beauty, and go out eagerly looking for their loves, leaving “the Prince” clinging to his old memory and to the glass slipper.
