The legendary duo work of Kondo and Ikuyo Kuroda
“My Lover”, which was performed at the opening of the Kichijoji Theater, will appear at the Kichijoji Theater for the first time in 16 years!
In order to face this work, “feeling shaken off” and “useless physical strength” is required. Both are lacking these days! While thinking
I want to do it because there is no reason not to dance! I think. I hope you can meet “my lover” purely and correctly even though you are of a reasonable age.
Say “It’s okay!” Mr. Ikuyo.
It’s a piece that I created with nearly 20 years ago, and it’s a piece that I love so much that I always want to dance to it. There is also a phenomenon that this work makes me “comfortable” just because I didn’t do it properly. I’m really looking forward to the re-performance after a long time, but I’m a little shy now that we’ve become two middle-aged people. However, please allow me to be aegyo here, and let the pink dress flutter all the way to the other side of “comfort,” right? Mr. .
While watching the video from 16 years ago, we reviewed together. “You’re so young~” “You’ve done something like this!”
