HIBIKI [ LOINTAINE RÉSONANCE ] / creation 1998

Choreography Ushio Amagatsu
Performed by Sankai Juku

Walking, the simple form of walking: two people, staring straight ahead, walk slowly, in step, in the same direction. No need to indicate when to stop or when to move on together; no matter if there's more than two or if they move faster, it's the same thing.    
No words, just a resonance, a dialogue between consciences.     
The resonance bursts forth from tension, tension generated by a collision, two taut surfaces collide.       
Yet, if one of them slackens, the other does so too, and the resonance disappears.           
Apparently ontogenesis is like phylogenesis.     
A one-month old foetus begins its metamorphosis, from fish to amphibian, from reptile to mammal.        
The advent, which took place over several million of years during the Palaeozoic era, takes a human foetus but several days.  
The noise of blood flowing through the womb of a mother sounds like the movement of waves.
This is the first resonance that we hear.
