Estranged father and daughter bridge a gap to reunite
"I  dance because I do not trust words" is a duet by dancer and choreographer Ito Kaori and her father, the sculptor Ito Hiroshi. Enjoying a stellar career in France, Ito Kaori put together a work that addresses head on her relationship with her father, in order to restore something that had been lost. Estranged due to a gulf that had arisen between them, father and daughter join forces here to express in dance an intimate relationship that is distant, yet close.


Ito Kaori

Born in Tokyo. Ito appeared in the first Japanese production of Iris, directed by Philippe Decouflé, in 2003. Following the production’s Paris performances she swiftly began to expand the range of her activities, presenting her own works while working on those of others such as dancer and choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Appointed a Knight (Chevalier) of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government in 2015. Resides in Paris.
