CANARY is the first dance theater work of Yoriko. In 2010 she was selected as a up-coming choreographer to make this work and national tour in Japan.

It's about the daily life of the people living in a MEGA city like Tokyo, and the psychological  states of humans. The focus of this work is Loneliness, desires of the people in a big city, ignorance and addiction to the others. The contrast between the humanity and social and political system in that people are monitored, seems like a grotesque world of SF.
