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, danced Beethoven's No. 5 “Fate” in solo by group dance. ”This time, instead of No. 5“ Fate ” 9 ”. This is a new work! From the beginning, I was in charge of choreography and the Morishita stand dances. Many people are misunderstood.

Morishita choreographed “fate” in the Kani City Cultural Creation Center (Gifu Prefecture) in March 2016, “Let's dance in the orchestra!” (Attempt that citizens dance with live performances of local symphony orchestras) It was. It 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 Satoshi I danced solo. After that, the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, whose conductor is also a music director, Mitsuru EbiharaDanced the first 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 would n’t die unless I did everything from Beethoven's Symphonies Nos. 1 to 9. Is Ebihara-san involved as a music director? “Next is“ No. 7 ”” or something like that It is progressing and it is about to become a project that aims to conquer all (laughs).
Is it the “9th”? Next year was Beethoven ’s 250th birthday, so I decided to start with 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 premiere at Kanagawa Youth Center Studio HIKARI, for example, I would like to perform 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 charm of“ Ninth ”and taught chorus. Because it is a conductor, the director who bundles the sound to say.The thing that impressed me in the words of Ebihara is that “No. 9” is not intended to match the performance, and each performer It's characterized by the energy that keeps playing in an interpretation so that it doesn't fall apart. '' 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 as a result,” 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 a variety of 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.
