This play, fascinating in its strangeness, has a mysterious title. It is about Japan Josef Nadj reconstructs in his dreams (…) The six scenes recount the evolution of the relationships between the two dancers who are so unlike each other. These are the relationships between a samurai and a young Japanese woman with the traditional upbringing background. These are the relationships between dominance and submission, but they are in the state of constant evolution that is manifest in every beat and in every breath. They contain subtle, barely perceptible humor and the image of time is predominant throughout the performance. It is present in the movements of the bodies, in the visual imagery and in the strong sense of vitality produced by the dancers. Cécile Loyer is Josef Nadj’s trusted and long-term partner. She follows him wherever he journeys, dissolving in the madness of her partner and patron. Watching this tragicomedy one can’t help his heart sinking from the acuity of the emotions that are truly captivating. Even pauses in the dance are breathtaking.
