In December 2020, the up-and-coming choreographer Naoya Homan’s world new work, “Beauty and the Beast,” opened to great acclaim.
Ella, a beautiful girl who works at the popular boutique “L’atelier de Gabriella”.
She was taken in by Gabriella, the owner of the boutique, and came here from an orphanage.
A gifted designer, Ella dreamed of one day owning her own brand. All the clothes sold in this store were designed by Ella, but Gabriella has kept this fact hidden.
One day, an invitation to a Grand Maison collection party arrives at the boutique. However, Gabriella does not allow Ella to join the party.
Ella left alone in the boutique. When I was overwhelmed with sorrow, a lady came to me.
The lady sees that all the clothes in the boutique are Ella’s designs and invites Ella into a mysterious space. It was an atelier with colorful fabrics from all over the world.
“Ella, draw your special design.” Ella drew the design as the lady told her, and in the blink of an eye, it transformed into a wonderful dress. Ella in the dress rushes to the party.
There, Ella met a young man who is a supermodel who is exciting now. The two, who are in similar circumstances, are naturally attracted to each other.
However, an unexpected future awaits them…

“This program is a very novel, pop and aggressive work that replaces Cinderella with the fashion industry.
It seems that there will also be a dance of threads and cloth, which are indispensable in making clothes. I thought. The fluctuations and entanglements of the thread can be seen as human relationships and emotions intertwined, and because it is simple, I hope that the audience will be able to freely see and draw various worlds in their own way.
We hope that you will use your imagination to enjoy the time and space of a modern version of Cinderella spun from a single thread.” [Image 10
