New Kyogen "Rokujizo" that I worked on with children
Hinoki stage of Kyogen masters living in the 21st century
Vol.10 "Rokujizo" Workshop
Okura doctrine (Noh performer Kyogen style Okura school)
The sea and mountains can be seen from the gymnasium.
In a great location, I was working on a new Kyogen with the children.
The theme of this time is to make the story that is transmitted to the land into Kyogen. The theme was "Rokujizo".
It's a simple story that a long time ago, children who tried to beg for rain when told by the lord accidentally sprinkled water on Jizo and it rained.
So I added a little dramatization and ended up with a very Kyogen-like ending, saying, "If the children are dancing in the rain, Jizo will also start dancing."
First, hand over the script and practice vocalization and behavior.
Children who were initially nervous gradually get used to it and relax. Then, the child who couldn't make a voice (it was very loud but couldn't make it in public) gradually became able to make a voice, smiled more, and remembered the lines well.
Next is madMovement as a word.
All Kyogen performances have a fixed "type". It is important to polish what the teacher taught you as a technique.
I stopped here.
If you are working on a "new work" with children, is it important to start with a fixed "type"? Given the limited time, it may be rather annoying. What is needed to stimulate children's sensibilities is to create with free ideas without being bound by "types".
Feeling that way, I let the children freely decide the poses and expressions of Jizo. Ask them to be independent and creative and to move as they want. We teach it in a "mold", and so on.
It is important for children not to teach correct or incorrect answers, but to be close to, acknowledge, and guide the ideas they come up with.
I think the children felt the joy of being able to express their thoughts as a "type." The smiles and serious expressions of the children when they stood on the stage showed that.
The three days we spent together with a lot of smiles were an irreplaceable time for me.
