    • Synopsis
    • This art documentary has to rise to the new challenges facing the art of dance, and has to encompass two areas. The first is the creative processes behind the world premiere of the dance "The Garden of Time", (from 7th January 2010). The second is to document the challenges that Yasuyuki Shutô faced enthusiastically in the topical performance of "Man Fell into a Blank" and "Apocifu", during the 365 days of 2010.
      Furthermore, it shows the spectacular solo dance performance in the last scene that caps a new piece of ballet music, written by Ringo Shiina and choreographed by Megumi Nakamura.
      World -renowned dancers Yasuyuki Shutô and Megumi Nakamura perform all over the world to the great honour of Japan.
      Their performances grab the attention of audiences worldwide with their ability to call to mind humanity's roots. How do they do this?
      The film allows the audience to exclusively glimpse the previously unseen hidden and very private world back stage.
      The dancers sincere attitude and continuing unstinting efforts, which are beyond all imagination, are bought to bear on the new challenges they face. Together with their humanity audiences are treated to the deep emotion and hope they project.
