Koichi Imai (Editor)

In Kokeraotoshi of Kanagawa Prefectural Youth Center studio HIKARI, Magukaru aiming dancer-choreographer of Maki Morishita, which staged a "Tenkomori" which was projected its own dance life, the excavation and development of young talent to create a future live performance of The new work adopted by the theater will be staged. However, the face does not float for some reason.
“A lot of people are saying,“ Morishita-san's solo danced Beethoven's No. 5 “Fate” in a group dance ”. This time,“ No. 9 ”. This is a new work! I was in charge of choreography from the beginning and the Morishita stand danced. There are many people who are misunderstood.

Morishita choreographed “fate” in March 2016 in the Kani City Cultural Creation Center (Gifu Prefecture) “Let's dance in the orchestra!” It was. I was fascinated by “fate”, and the first movement was choreographed by MIKIKO, the second movement by Miki Moriyama, the third movement by Naoki Ishikawa, and the fourth movement by Kasai Kaoru (I think that it is a great member again and again) I danced solo. After that, the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, whose conductor is also the director of music, Mitsuru EbiharaI danced the 1st movement with the performance of the Harmony Symphony Orchestra, and danced with the live performance of the pianist Yasuhiko Imanishi. Even in “Tenkomori”, the 4th movement was performed while the dancers of the Morishita stand appeared. It ’s a “fate” woman.

So why is this “Ninth”?

“In fact, when I did“ Fate ”, I felt that I had to do everything from Beethoven's Symphonies No. 1 to No. 9. I didn't really like Beethoven, but I met Ebihara-san is involved as a music director, but “Next is“ No. 7 ”” or something like that in the future. It is progressing, and it is about to become a project that aims to conquer all (laughs).
Next year is 250 years since Beethoven's birth, and I chose to do what I wanted to do. “Fate” is still going to be done, but eventually I would like to be able to do something like “Fate” and “Ninth” against the van, and as “Ninth to watch”, a concert somewhere at the end of the year I would be happy if you could call me. After a premiere at Kanagawa Youth Center Studio HIKARI, for example, I would like to co-star with Kanagawa Phil at Kanagawa Prefectural Hall.

Morishita, who has recently conceived a unique project, has been involved in it, and has realized it. "No. 9" fate and how!

Speaking of “9th”, many people will think of the last great chorus. So the concept of this work is to challenge with group dance.
“The other day, Mr. Ebihara received the“ Ninth ”lecture with 10 young dancers from the Morishita stand. About Beethoven, he asked about the appeal of“ Ninth ”and gave guidance to chorus. Because it is a conductor, the director who bundles up the sound to say.The thing that impressed me in the words of Ebihara was that “No. 9” was not intended to match the performance, and each performer It's the energy that keeps playing in an interpretation so that it doesn't fall apart. ”Actually, Morishita stand is also the same. The backgrounds from ballet to street dance, modern dance, rhythmic gymnastics, theater etc. are scattered, and the individual is strong Only members who make their own works, they are doing “Ninth”, so they keep a lasting balance. Laughs). I also I'm not suitable for people in group dancing including (maybe), but a force that ultimately pretend to your stuff is I have a very "

Morishita stand is a company where young members Maki Morishita met at the Yokohama Dance Collection gathered under Morishita. Even though the physicality and dance technique are amazing, when I made a work, there was a place where I felt ugly, and I formed it through an audition because of the interest of "what will happen if I choreographed it".
And this time, the first new book performance as the company Morishita stand. “If you are a company, you can do a lot of experiments, and I want to grow that way,” says Morishita.

A two-week residence was held at the Kinosaki International Art Center in April. After that, dance it over a month.

“I think that the theme is the same for both“ Fate ”and“ No. 9 ”. Overcoming adversity, leading to a new frontier, and finally rejoicing. But“ No. 9 ”sounds different. There is an impression that you can see various scenery.It feels like you are traveling around the world.It is a journey of a phrase that looks for joy.It would be nice if you could see various scenery from our dance ,I think"

Send it to the Governor of Kuroiwa Kanagawa Prefecture who loves the stage.
