How do you say goodbye to what has accompained you for almost two decades?
How can you just sum up in one performance what has characterized you so everybody will remember what you did forever?
Mariko exactly knows it;and with the help of that swan they call Hoshina Yuri everything is 500 times better.
Two iconic dancers giving their best on a romantic,yet strong and decise pas de deux. Red and black dresses,high technique,cross passes and perfect lifts make up what is still considered on of this combi’s finest dances.
It wasn’t easy to succed Shiraki Ayaka,but Hoshina did everything she could to be unique and beautiful like an eternal classic.
This is an abstract from Lure of the icon,Mariko’s farewell small theatre performance.
No hesitations,no regrets,no break downs should obscure that performance on thetare that in fact was PHENOMENAL. It just didn’t seem the end of a great star like Mariko.
Here she is interpreting a young dance prodigy named Mikhail ready to take the dance world by storm with her partner Tatiana (maybe even in life?See the kiss…).
How ironic for a God gifted born dancer…
THAT IS HOW YOU MAKE A GREAT (SMALL THEATRE) GOODBYE
