Final Goodbye.

Three women each write a last letter to the same man, whom they, for different reasons, will never see again. Each letter evokes and hurts deeply, tearing not only the man but also the writers themselves.


Slowly, like a puzzle, the picture of an entire situation emerges, which the man and the women alike show from different perspectives in their upright approaches to one another, to communal family life, love and breaking apart. We see the women and the destroyed man in his fall. We sense insight gained, believe that we recognized something – and yet the certainty disappears, the one truth becomes blurred by a fog, like the figure of the man walking along the river bed.


AKS uses contemporary dance, acting, film and photography to re-tell Yasushi Inoue's haunting, award-winning 1949 story The Hunting Gun in this multi-part adaptation.
