Fukuoka: the day of the performance has arrived. Class, rehearsals and spacing on stage so that the swans will find their way run quietly and smoothly. Purely coincidentally the National Sumo Wrestler Championships are taking place in Fukuoka at the same time as our stay – in the Convention Center right next to our theater. Many dancers take advantage of this unique opportunity and run next door the evening before and even in the afternoon break before the performance.
