Hinoki stage of Kyogen masters living in the 21st century
Vol.12 Raising people
Okura doctrine (Noh performer Kyogen style Okura school)

I think it's the same in every organization, but it's difficult to raise people anyway!

Now I have an uchideshi. He was five years younger than me and hit my dad's gate as soon as he graduated from college. Naturally, I become an educational instructor.
It was my first experience of raising people, so it was a day of trial and error as to how to deal with it and how to convey it. At that time, I was surprised to read Shizuka Ijuin's book "Adult Style".

"When you scold someone, scold them in your own words."
"It can be unreasonable, because society is more unreasonable."

Until then, I had taken a step back and was in contact with him, but I decided to follow Mr. Ijuin's words and convey what I thought in my own words. I may overstate it a little, but I don't forget to follow up later.

Raising people

The training process of uchi-deshi begins with the so-called "bag holding". On practice days, have them cleaned from the morning. We also teach you how to clean the tatami mats and the floor of the stage from scratch.
On the day of the performance, we carried the costumes and entered the dressing room. In the dressing room, dress up on the dressing room. If you have the necessary props on the stage, it is important to prepare them. If you don't know how to prepare, I will teach you and accept questions. Be careful if the costume is not handled properly.

Tea fetching is also one of the important tasks.
We will also give detailed instructions on when to make tea and how to make it. For example, if you don't add a word, "How about tea?" Or "I've made tea," you won't know who the tea is. The amount of tea is the 8th minute.

You also have to teach how to put on your costume. It is important to wear the creases correctly, carefully, accurately and quickly. Be careful if you can't, and sometimes get angry.
Instruct them not to make the wrong creases even if only one folding method is used.

Raising people
As the saying goes, "Disciples are begging for teaching," basically, I don't "teach". Ask them to see and remember, and ask questions if they don't understand.
By doing so, you will naturally develop an attitude of working on things voluntarily. It's not something you care about, it's something you work with. What do you need now and what should you do? You have to think for yourself and solve it yourself.
The trust that is created there becomes a strong bond, and strong teamwork is born.

Not only the stage, but also the attitude and manner of facing work and the way of being as a person are very important. When he becomes a full-fledged person, I feel that it is my duty as an educator to raise him so that he will not be ashamed wherever he goes.

It's been 10 years since he started. I think he followed me well. Different ages have different environments in which they were born and raised. With different values and ways of thinking, we will continue to build good relationships so that we can recognize the goodness of our disciples and respect each other.want to go.
