Koichi Imai (editing writer)

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 Perform the new work adopted by the theater . However, for some reason the face does not come to mind.
"A lot of people say, "Mr. Morishita dances solo with Beethoven's fifth "fate" in a group dance." This time, it's not "fate" but "fifth". It's 9”. It's a new work! I'm in charge of choreography from scratch, and the Morishita stand dances. I'm in trouble because many people are mistaken (laughs)."

Morishita choreographed "fate" in a project called "Let's dance with an orchestra!" (Citizens will dance with a live performance by a local symphony orchestra) in March 2016 at the Kani City Cultural Creation Center (Gifu Prefecture). It was After that, I was fascinated by "fate" and choreographed the 1st movement to MIKIKO, the 2nd movement to Miki Moriyama, the 3rd movement to Naoki Ishikawa, and the 4th movement to Akira Kasai. But) I danced solo. After that, the day when the conductor, Mitsuru Ebihara, who is also the music director this time, shakes the tact He has performed the first movement with the performance of this Philharmonic Orchestra, and has performed with the live performance of pianist Yasuhiko Imanishi. In "Tenkomori", the fourth movement was performed while the Morishita stand dancers appeared. It's just a "fate" woman.

So why is this the "9th"?

“Actually, when I did my "fate," I felt like I would have to die without playing Beethoven's symphonies Nos. 1 to 9. I didn't really like Beethoven, but I met him. It was my mission, can I do it while I'm alive? Mr. Ebihara will be involved as a music director, "I will be the "No. 7" next time", and even the future plans It's progressing, and it's about to become a project aiming for the overall victory (laughs).
Is it the “Ninth”? Next year is Beethoven's 250th birthday, so I chose what I wanted to do. I'm still doing "fate", but eventually I hope that I can do something like "fate" and "9th" against the van, and as "9th to watch", somewhere at the end of the year I would be happy if you could call me. After having premiered at Kanagawa Prefectural Youth Center Studio HIKARI, I would like to play with Kanagawa Phil in the Kanagawa Kenmin Hall, for example."

Morishita has recently been contemplating a unique project, involving others, and realizing it. How fate is the “9th”!

Speaking of "9th," many would think of the last chorus. Therefore, the concept of this work is to challenge with group dance.
"The other day, Mr. Ebihara received a lecture on "9th" together with 10 young dancers at the Morishita stand. He asked us about Beethoven's "9th" attraction and gave us chorus guidance. Since he is a conductor, he is a director who bundles sounds, and I was impressed by Mr. Ebihara's words: "The 9th is not intended to match the performance, each performer It is the energy that keeps the interpretation from playing so that it doesn't fall apart.” Actually, Morishita Stand is also the same. The background such as ballet, street dance, modern dance, rhythmic gymnastics, and theatre, etc. , Each member makes their own work. I'm doing the "9th", so I keep a balance (laugh). It is people who are not suitable for group dance, including myself (probably). But, in the end, I really have the power to make the swing my own.''

The Morishita Stand is a company where young members Maki Morishita met at Yokohama Dance Collection and others gathered under Morishita. Although the physicality and dance technique are amazing, there are some things that I feel like "I'm sorry" when it comes to making a work, and I formed after an audition from the interest of "what if I choreographed".
And this time, the first new book performance of the company Morishita stand. "A company can do various experiments, and I want to grow myself with that," Morishita said.Says.

I held a two-week residence at the Kinosaki International Art Center in April, sketched the work, and already see the big picture. After that, I will dance it over a month.

“Dancing, I think the theme is the same for “fate” and “No. 9”. Overcoming adversity, reaching a new frontier, and finally rejoicing. But “No. 9” has various sounds. There is an impression that you can see various scenery. It feels like you are traveling all over the world. It is a journey of a phrase to look for joy. It would be nice if we can see various scenery from our dance ,I think"

Deliver to the stage lover Governor of Kuroiwa Kanagawa, ``I want you to see it!''
