"ITTEKI"-one drop-     ( 60 minutes)
Premiere 1995 The 2nd Osaka Dance Experience ( Osaka Torii Hall, Osaka )

In our days, if this country Japan were a puddle, I myself might be a single drop of water falling into it. Ripples appear, interfere each other, create various forms, and disappear to the infinite.
In my lifetime, I feel I have encountered four impressive drops of water; a child, a woman, a man, and an old person. Four people, or just a single one ? Or a mysterious image that might embody them all ?
Those four drops are what I am seeking for in my dance.
As a drop holding day and night inside me, I would like to fall into this puddle.
