PƖq_B̌ߌThe new season of the NNTT's Contemporary Dance series begins with dance concerts by pairs of male and female dancers. Performers include dancers in their prime, those who are attracting public attention as writers as well, those who have won awards at contests in Japan and abroad and those who continue to be active without adhering to one particular genre. Enjoy the interesting combination of the paired dancers, as well as rhythms engendered by their bodies and a broad range of their dazzling dance techniques.

Based on a Noh play, a mysterious contemporary dance is expressed by a flexible body.
Blind I became
“Too many to hold with both hands
Spilling ume flowers”
As the spring sun sets beyond the beach of Naniwa, the splendid, beautiful scene is secretly reborn as flowers in the blind's imagination.
