Last month, from May 18-21, the famous minimal piece Canto Ostinato by Simeon ten Holt could be heard in the dance production HELLO SURPRISE by Yuki Mori in the Schauspielhaus of the Nationaltheater Mannheim (Germany). The piece could be heard in the section of the dance production called Loops, and as the title suggests, Loops is based on the idea of circle, streaming, and continuous movement. In the center of the production is a separated pair, a man and a woman, whose emotional world and memories are tracked in individual snapshots. Mori unfolds an emotional stream of images that revolves around the themes of happiness, closeness, and separateness, developing in a symbolic yet realistic way, and always touching on inevitable episodes of the fear and charm that is part of opening up to another person.
