"Hanamai" is a dance performance that harmonizes dance and Ikebana, created by Fusako Yamamoto, myself.

 

Under the inspirational atmosphere, flowers gradually emerge as something symbolic rather than a mere arrangement along with the music in conjunction with the movement of dance.

 

Flowers are symbols of nature, and dance is a symbol of body.

 

Ikebana, the art of silence, and dance, the art of movement.

 

It is a unique performance where nature and body, movement and stillness intersect.
