In 2015, Takuya Murakawa presented the dance piece End, his second dance work. This time, he presents an all-new performance created by reworking End.
Dancers Midori Kurata and Emi Matsuo have worked together since they were students on a number of pieces. In this piece, Murakawa as the director focuses on choreography these two women have danced before. He selects a number of pieces from the enormous volume of choreography they have danced in the past, and he has them dance those pieces in the present.
As these two women dance this choreography from the past as if telling an old tale, their own memories will come back to life. The passage of time creates a physical transformation, and they will inevitably be made conscious of their deteriorating stamina and movement ability. As these two women in the present are made to dance to this choreography from their past, they will be caught up in conflicts and contradictions. However, those feelings will also become the trigger that will allow them to acquire their own will to dance. At the same time, it may also become an opportunity for them to say goodbye to the their own dances from the past. In other words, it may be that this will become an attempt to evoke the present moment—a present moment that is the beginning of an end, a present which is itself coming to a close.
