“An invitation to a floating world without frontiers.” – RFI (France)

“Japan’s most important choreographer” Saburo Teshigawara (New York Times) returns to Lincoln Center Festival with his newest work featuring Aurélie Dupont, Paris Opera Ballet’s former étoile and new Director of Dance. In this fantasy that inhabits the border zone between wakefulness and sleep, Teshigawara uses evocative stagecraft—transparent furniture, floating set pieces, shimmering surfaces—and a rippling, aqueous dance vocabulary to create a dreamlike atmosphere. Tinkling piano keys and ambient electronica give way to a striking rock anthem, the musical progression echoing the deepening ambiguity about the nature of consciousness, sleep, and the world on the other side.
