Description The choreography is based on the Japanese poem Haigafuru (Ash is Falling) written by Tatsuji Miyoshi after the atom bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This cynical outpouring from the pen of an otherwise lyrical poet is astonishingly topical in the wake of the recent Fukushima nuclear disaster. Questions and fears related to nuclear power are not just part of history – they are still frighteningly relevant today.
