  ·       I suz U

The story of Izanagi and Izanami is a Japanese mythology of birth of this world. One swing of their arms creates things which are the original ones of the things, and the swings also make a beautiful mystical dance.  Tonight, you’ll see the cross world of everlasting infinity world and the present world.

about  TOKOIRIYA 
 
Dancing is “praying.” With this belief, Ryoki Midorima,
a ballet artist from Okinawa, continues to devote himself to the creation of
a new art and dance performances.
Going beyond the boundary of genres, Midorima created a composite art “TOKOIRIYA” as his lifework.

The performance was premiered first in Tokyo in May, 2015 and was also performed at Valley of Gangala (Okinawa) in January, 2016. Both finished in huge successes and the venues were filled with ringing applause.

The mystic and unique visions of Ryoki Midorima breaks conventional notions of ballet which originated from the West by merging it with Dance of the Ryukyu Kingdom(Ryukyuan dance), a traditional dance form originated from Okinawa. “TOKOIRIYA” continues to fascinate and attract audiences from Okinawa and abroad.
 
Through dancing, a universal expression of all humanity, we overcome the past, gaze at the “light” leading to the future, embrace the spirit of “Re Born” in our dance, share it with the audience, and transmit it to the world.

We hope you enjoy the new art born in the flow of everlasting history.
