"House of Hope"

"House of Hope"

What to believe and what not to believe?
Akakilike's new dance performance will be performed in Matsumoto and Tokyo!

Akakilike will present a new dance performance at a theater for the first time in five years, after a residency in Matsumoto.
Although Midori Kurata's works are completely fictional, they are always connected to real-life issues between herself and society.
The theme of this work is "faith". People have different things to believe in. People, animals, nature, religion—what do people rely on to live their lives? Kurata's focus on the theme of faith this time was ``marriage.'' She incorporates the structure of a wedding ceremony and launches a dance with performers from various backgrounds.

The house where you were born and raised is being overwritten by new houses. When you are a child, become a mother, a grandmother, or someone else, when you are left alone, do I still exist within you? 

Do you vow to love, respect, comfort, and help each other in good health, in sickness, in times of wealth, and in times of poverty, to do your best with sincerity for as long as you live?

About believing or loving.
