Fall! Falter!! Dance!!!

"There's a style in modern dance right now called Release Technique. It's based on a feeling of falling and catching yourself, and I thought it was such a good metaphor for the way life feels" - Greta Gerwig, actress.

Inspired in part by Frances Ha, a fictional movie character, in part by an old Japanese proverb "fall seven times, get up eight". Fall! Falter!! Dance!!! explores the idea of resilience through personal anecdotes of failure and disappointments in the style of open-mic stand-up.  

Duration: 23 minutes

​Created and Performed by Ryuichi Fujimura
