The Stages of a Crazy King of the 21st Century Vol. 2
The practice of Kyogen is bright, fun and energetic!

Great Confucianism

"Can I make a loud voice?" I was surprised at the student who asked the question with a surprised expression. That's because rehearsal has to make a loud voice, because it is such a play. But if you think about it carefully, this is the Kagura Hall inside the shrine grounds, and it is half-outdoor. Speaking out loud may certainly be daunting. If you recommend, "Let's do it without concern," the student's loud voice! The voice breaks the silence, is absorbed by the trees in the grounds, or disappears in the wind. Stillness to return again. There are a lot of students who like this regularly and continue.

What is "voice"? It must be proof that you are yourself. Like fingerprints, voiceprints are not the same. By speaking out, I am here. I think that it is proof that you are alive here.

It is not only to stand on the stage the work of the enthusiasts who live in the 21st century. It is also important to open "classrooms" to disseminate the Kyogen culture and teach dance and dance to the students. "alt =" "width =" 1024 "height =" 684 "/> The practice of deeds starts with the imitation of the teacher Singing a song, and the fixed movement of the play will all imitate, though it may be a fine thing, but we will pursue it until we get into shape and shape, with minimal movement, and with minimal movement. Beautifully, I will polish while facing my body.

There are various reasons why the students started to go crazy. Office workers, housewives, teachers, students, children. From first year people to over 30 years of students! Mixed with young and old, we are practicing for the stage of presentation and dedication of shrines. The motto of the classroom is "bright and fun!"

Well, this time, I asked the students to talk.

What is the reason why you started going crazy?

TY I do not lose sight of myself because of work stress.
MM I have been watching the stage of classical arts for many years, but one day I suddenly wanted to do it.
MY I was interested in seeing the flyers distributed at school when I was in first grade. "alt =" "width =" 1024 "height =" 684 "/>

Each of them is different from yourselves, but please tell us why you are continuing.

TM attractive teacher and flexible practice (laughs)

I'm glad (laughs)

It is pleasant to give a loud MM voice, and I have a strong desire to stand in front of people.
MY I can not stop as soon as the presentation ends, I think about the next presentation!

I'm practicing at a shrine that is not a studio, etc. How is the location?

Because people in front of MY go through the worship, I feel that I can practice by assuming the audience as well as the production.
It is a place where TY is a sacred place and you can not do evil (laughs)
TM I am the advantage of the earth. I like the rest in a retro atmosphere.
MM I also feel calm.

I am encouraged by the practice every time, but what do you want from the practice?

Not to mention TY technology, there is also an explanation from the teacher of Japanese culture that suits the content.
I want to improve the beauty of my body through MY dance and so on.
MM I would like to have tension every time. Besides, there are discoveries that lead to various things.
TM I think that it is also interesting to study songs, incorporating multi-discipline lessons.

What is the attraction of Kyogen?

MY no longer has a choice of laughing (laughs)
TY That's right. I think it's a worldview that I build, whether I'm watching, acting or dancing.
I feel fun in a place where bright and simple drawing universal themes such as foolishness and suspicion of TM human beings.
Like MM, it's a universal human weird and surreal, surreal world.

Finally, please tell us your vision of the future.

MY I do not know how far can, but doing it seems to the point where Yareru! I think that some time will continue to Kyogen.
I want to connect with various people through TY 狂 and live happily happily.
MM I want to enjoy the gap between the same place and the place where I grew up.
TM Looking for a place to work as a senior in a reemployment after retirement (laughs)

In the classroom, we are working on various purposes.

On this day, I concentrated on the practice of the Kyogen "Mosquito Sumo" dedicated at the Nakanoshima Inari Shrine Example Festival on October 6. Free of charge on the day, so anyone can look at it, so please come if you have not seen Kyogen.
And if you saw the results of your daily practice and you thought, “I would like to do it too!” We have experiences in the classroom, so please feel free to contact us!
