A dancer is on stage, yet what we see seems to be deeper inside the body, as if traveling through the Dancer R's cells beyond or before memories or thoughts.
Rihoko Sato's exceptionally sensitive body enables to take the audience through this unique experience.
Participants of the U18 dance workshop are also taking part in this performance, each body like a yet to be born cell.

It seems like Teshigawara is trying to transplant the genes of his dance to the life cell called “Dancer R” - Rihoko Sato. And not as a clone, but he is actually trying to transcend it by strengthening and extending it.
Rihoko Sato is an incredible dancer who is continuously evolving, but Teshigawara, who is choreographing, is also continuing a fiercely beautiful challenge.
