Choreographer-dancer Yuriko illustrates how a dance looks in the process of being created. The works performed include Yuriko's "The Fool's Tale" and a scene from her dance "The Ghost" derived from the Grand Kabuki Theater.
In the sequences that show the creation of a dance Yuriko tries out various steps and movements, rehearses her dancers, and communicates to them the effects she visualizes. Yuriko is a leading member of the Martha Graham company, and had an important role in the celebrated Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "The King and I."
