I am reading an article about a pro figure skater who is recovering from an injury. The author talks about the skater beginning to heal, but then re-injuring herself.


I thought that 暗転 would mean something like "took a turn for the worse" but my dictionary said that it means "theatrical blackout" (not able to perform?) Is that correct? Can you also use it as "took a turn for the worse"

Well, according to the Weblio entry for 暗転, the first definition says, “A dark change,” and the second definition says, “A change for the worse”.

So I would say yes, you can.
