Imperceptible loneliness
The edge of a line

Winds across blow
The end of a road
A ray of a light

Fragmented experiences get reappeared.

Who am I?
Where am I?
Where can I find the reason for my existence?

Now, here...
What is happening?
What is happening to me right now?

The concept of this piece is based on my experience that I almost lost all because of the water disaster. I face to fear and uncertainty sensation of overwhelmed loneliness.

誰かを呼ぶ
すると世界がふり向く
そしてまた私がいなくなる

生、性、繁殖、死・・・

私はアルファであり、オメガであり、
初めであり、終りなのです。
そう、世界が愛してくれるので、
私はいつまでも孤りでいられるのです。

I call someone, and the whole word turns around.
At that moment, I cease to exist.

Life, gender, breeding, death...

I am the alpha and the omega.
The beginning and the end.
The world love me,so I can be alone forever.

“Reflected Image" was created in 2009 to focus a theme of interests which exploring an existence of a image beyond words. A color is classified into two types. One is the color which is created when a light gets through objects. Another is the result of reflecting lights from objects. How do we chose what to see and ignore from our own perspectives? What does an image mean for us beside our emotions, stories or logics? It is going in and out at a door of visible or invisible worlds, which doesn't exist certainly like appearing or disappearing. Why are people impressed with images? What of the image does make people like that?
I focused on "energies". I sometimes feel the “energies” or the “universe”, and one of the places that I feel them is at a church. I imagine how many people pray and confess at this place.
I don’t belong to any religions, but I was impressed with one experience that was happened when I visited to Israel. I saw the rock where Jesus Christ lied down and passed away. The rock is symbolic place for people all over the world, and they visit there with their agonies or sufferings. Many people were stroking it absorbedly or putting photos with someone special on it and shedding tears. As I was observing the situations, I felt like falling into a deep hole and felt tears were going along my cheeks. That was the experiences I was drawn into whirlpool of “energies”, and my tears were came up unconsciously.
We can share something even if we don’t believe same religions, have different curter and race.
People tend to remember a sadness more than a happiness. Sometimes the sadness overwhelms people, and they can’t forget and handle sufferings or misfortunes.Nevertheless, people go through lives. People keep going their own journeys along with concealing their hearts something unforgettable.

『ざま』は、ダンスの持っている抽象性、言い換えるならば、隙間をたくさんつくることにアプローチした作品です。

飛び込んできたものを許容する
仕組む・・・ 
確信犯
