Aim! Workshop to watch, laugh, experience and get energized
Hinoki stage of Kyogen masters living in the 21st century
Vol.6 Workshop to watch, laugh, experience and get energized
Okura doctrine (Noh performer Kyogen style Okura school)
Learning is play. Play is learning.
When did you come across this word?
When I was in elementary school, the blue litmus paper used in science experiments turned red when immersed in an acidic aqueous solution. I still can't forget the excitement from my feet to my head to this discovery and surprise. The wonder brought about by a piece of paper and liquid stimulated curiosity and became a "play" that went beyond "class".
Recently, I've been asked more and more for hands-on workshops for children.
I had experience in workshops before, but the target is basically adults. It took about 20 minutes at the longest to have customers experience various expression methods such as basic posture, footsteps, and vocalization by setting the stage between the performances.
The first workshop job I received around the age of 30 was an event that even preschoolers could attend. We, who are not accustomed to children, showed Kyogen and taught various expressions and patterns such as basic posture and sliding legs.
The children got tired of it.
I got tired of it in less than 10 minutes.
Some children left on the way.
The remaining 50 minutes are for parents.
Even though it's an event for children.
That setback that I still can't forget.
Well, just remembering it makes me uncomfortable ...
It's a world of classical performing arts in the first place, so I'm embarrassed to think that it's a serious thing to lose shape.
First of all, I thought about what I was missing and what I should do to have fun. It's like replacing cells in the bodyIt was.
Workshops are play, not learning. With that feeling, I prepared various things.
A self-made Kyogen picture-story show.
A fan kid that can make original folding fans.
There will also be time to try on Kyogen costumes.
Over the next few years, I was able to create an "exciting workshop" that people can enjoy without breaking the "genuine" and "mold".
Faces laughing and frolicking at the children's Kyogen.
In the experience, the movement is full of energy and the loud voice is cracking.
A figure that expresses themselves triumphantly.
I gradually gained confidence when I saw the child sitting behind me gradually appearing in front of me.
What is the true appeal of "classical performing arts"?
What is the "traditional performing art" that should really be cherished?
I strongly want to be a place where I can learn while playing with such things.
