Learning is play. Play is learning.
When did you meet 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. With this discovery and surprise, I can't forget the excitement from my feet to my head. The wonder brought about by a piece of paper and liquid stimulated curiosity and became "play" beyond "class".

Recently, I have been asked more often for hands-on workshops for children.
I had experience of workshops until then, but the target was basically adults. Between the performances, the audience was put on stage to experience various expressions such as basic postures, legs, and vocalization. It took about 20 minutes at the longest.

The first workshop job I received around the age of 30 was an event that even preschoolers could attend. We, who are not used to children, taught various expressions and patterns such as showing Kyogen, basic posture, sliding feet, etc.

The children got tired.
I got tired in less than 10 minutes.
Some children left on the way.
The other 50 minutes are for parents.
It's an event for children.
Even now I can't forget that frustration.
Ah, even if I just remember...

In the first place, I'm embarrassed to think that it's a world of classical performing arts, so it's easy to lose shape.
First, I thought about what I was missing and what I should do to enjoy it. It's like replacing cells in the bodyIt was.

Workshops are not learning but play. With that feeling, I prepared various things.

A self-made Kyogen picture-story show.
Fan Kid that can make original fan.
There will also be time to try on Kyogen costumes.
Over the next few years, we were able to create an “exciting workshop” that visitors can enjoy without breaking the “genuineness” and “type”.
Aim! A workshop where you can watch, laugh, experience and be energized The faces and frolicking faces that laugh at the children's Kyogen.
In the experience, the movement is full of energy and the loud voice that is just cracking.
A figure that expresses himself enthusiastically.
Seeing the child sitting behind him gradually appearing forward, I gradually gained confidence.

What is the true charm of "classical arts"?
What is the “traditional performing art” that should really be valued?
I strongly want to be a place where I can "learn" while learning about such things.
