Kaori Ito and Mirai Moriyama to Stage First Dance Collaboration in Paris
From 21 to 24 March 2019 at Paris’ CENTQUATRE-PARIS, choreographer Kaori Ito is staging Is It Worth To Save Us? a recent work based on the science fiction novel Utsukushii Hoshi [A Beautiful Star] by Yukio Mishima.
For her first collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Mirai Moriyama, the duo worked alongside scriptwriter Soutarou Fujii to adapt the novel, giving way to a work where questions of duality, intimacy and foreignness are translated through dance. The piece follows a hot-cold relationship between a young couple, and ultimately asks, how can we dance to save the world?
Kaori Ito was born in Tokyo in 1979 and is known not only for her choreography work but also as a dancer and actress. She is currently artist in residence at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS and is an associated artist at the MAC in Créteil where she has staged two other shows this year: Robot, l’amour éternel in January and Embrase-moi with Théo Touvet in February.
