Accomplished dancer-choreographer-actor Hiromoto Ida skillfully merges dance, theatre, classical music and voice to tell the story of the old man, raising a glass of sake to himself in celebration on what will be his last birthday. Reminiscing about the richness of his life experience, he is visited by the spirit of his wife, soprano Allison Girvan. Featuring musicians Nicola Everton (clarinet), Sue Gould (piano), Jeff Faragher (cello), and Martine denBok (violin & viola), performing an evocative original score by Russian composer Pavel Karmanov. Inspired by the subtlety and simplicity of Japanese Noh theatre through western contemporary dance and music, Hiromoto touches the hearts of audiences; exploring a shared moment through the inner world and emotions of the old man, they are inspired to find unexpected beauty in their own lives through themes of love, transformation and regeneration.
