Choreographer/dancer Yukina Sakai and director/playwright Takahiro Fujita mutually propose fragments of creation such as the flows of their thoughts and words for instructions for performers. With performer Satoko Yoshida as the mediator, they start the creation from shared keywords. Sakai gives choreography and movements that she images, and Fujita gives texts, to Yoshida. Now that Yoshida has absorbed everything, how do they move her and what do they have her say? We will witness the advent of a moment when the boundary between the creations of Sakai and Fujita disappears.
