Throughout its history of over 400 years, ballet has been fascinating humans with its superior stylistic beauty.

Different from Europe and America, where only selected dancers can study and perform ballet, in Japan, ballet classes enjoy popularity among people ranging from hobby dancers to aspiring professionals. At present, the number of people involved with ballet in Japan amounts to several hundred thousand.

In this piece, Kurata Midori, whose own dance is based on a foundation of classical ballet, explores what kind of dance may be performed by methods entirely different from ballet. Together with “people who quit ballet,” she tackles the challenge of “ballet” with a view to the body in its current state, and the marks that past experiences have left on it.
