Kanagawari ・ Classical Project 2017 in Ohori

・ This year's re-classic will be staged by Kabuki Dance Nagauta “Yuka Haruka Kumiko”. First of all, how is Kabuki dance different from Japanese dance?

Noriaki Hanayanagi

Noriaki Hanayanagi: The mother body of Japanese dance is kabuki. Simply put, the Kabuki dance scene is the origin of Japanese dance, and during the Azuchi Momoyama period, Izumo Akuni (Izunomonokui) starts Kabuki dance, and if it is dance alone, it gets bored, so add a play It is said that what gradually became independent is the beginning of Japanese dance.

・ Are Japanese dance derived from Kabuki? Toro Takahiro Hanayagi is "Hanayaniku", but what other schools do you have in Japanese dance?

Mr. Chiyo Nishikawa

Nishikawa Ogi Chiyo: There are about 120 schools that belong to the Japan Dance Association throughout the country, but there should be a huge number of schools, including individuals. Among them, the five majors are called Hanayagi, Fujima, Wakayanagi, Nishikawa, and Bando. Among them, the Hanayagi style is said to be quite detailed, with a lot of choreography, and a colorful dance. In addition, the Nishikawa style is swaying because he made sway to the actors of Kabuki, and it is said that there are many classic styles.Have their own characteristics.

・ What was the reason for your decision to do Japanese dance?


Noriaki Hanayanagi: I was taken by my parents when I was four years old and I went to see the play. It will be about 50 years ago. At that time, it was in the normal life that old women did chopsticks and do classical arts. I ikebana, tea, etc. They were not special things and I learned from a nearby teacher. In a contemporary style, I think that I have once caught up with nature in Japanese dance in such a way, such as hula dance, aerobics and so on.

・ What kind of activities do you usually do?


Nori Takaharayanagi: I went to high school to teach dance, practice lessons, think about the composition of choreography and presentations, and dance myself. Recently I think that when I talk to my parents, I think there are many children who have little contact with their feelings. Nowadays, the number of children is decreasing, and it is not limited to only Japanese dance, but I think it is important to have a playroom where people from generations have contact. If you have a normal life, you may find it difficult to find your own place.

·Rehearsal hallIt would be nice to be your place. For students and small children, I think there are not many opportunities to get in touch with traditional arts unless the parents give them a chance.


Nori Takaharayanagi: There are places where Japanese dance is not only dancing but also learning how to go along with the lessons. There are many things that you can naturally take when you are small, such as standing up, dancing, using a fan, or doing a sit-up and bowing. At the Japan Dance Association, we are focusing on nurturing children, so we practice rehearsals while incorporating old Japanese play. I think that it is a very good thing to be able to provide the opportunity for children to show classical arts to young children this time.

・ What is the attraction of Japanese dance?

Mr. Noritaka Hanayanagi: For me, there are places that are too familiar and I can not understand for a while, but it is not always the case that a man plays a role as a man, and it also works as a woman. Wearing various costumes, playing a role, may seem to be attracted to a place like transformation. Moreover, it may be good to say that there is a place where you can release your mind, such as from the old days in the practice room where you can talk about troubles that you can not say at home.

・ From here, I would like to ask you about the program for Re ・ classic. What is the content of Nagatoge "Sakai Oshima Yuuka Haruka"?

Mr. Noritaka Hanayanagi: I decided to take up the ambitions of the famous Kamakura era Soga brothers, who will revolve around Odawara-Ohagi, since I will be in Oiso this year. This is a story that is considered to be one of the three major battles in Japan, in which Suga Juro and Goro, who have killed their father, avenge their nephew. The name of the sister of the Soga brothers is "Niinomiya", and the lover of Juro is "The Tiger of Oiso", and the lover of Goro is "The Major General of Kizaizaka", and the names of places around Oiso are full. So I guess everyone is friendly.

・ Please tell me the highlight.

Tori Takahiro Hanayagi: In the classics, it is assumed that some people have never seen Japanese dance, and the choreography, costumes, and props are gorgeous. For now, I decided to perform at the "Sakai no Tora" and "Masoji Minor General" who are Soga brothers' lover, in an effort to cherish the grasp that they are only women and beautiful and gorgeous. I think it will be fun just to look at the story even if you do not know it, so don't think too hard, and please come and see the small children together.
As a travel man and MITSUMI of the presidency, as a daughter at a lodging in Oyodo hotel, I intend to do something that is easy to understand before the show, so I think I can see it in a fun and easy-to-understand manner.

・ From here, we ask the performers for their enthusiasm for classics.

I do not think too hard, I want to make it a fun show that can be enjoyed without reason. The area around Oiso is a treasure trove of history, so I think it makes a lot of sense to do sogo at that place. This time, I'll replace it with a woman's thing because I want everyone to see the glamorous things. If you have a search on the net such as "Sakai no Tora", who is the Soga brother's lover, or "Major of the Makezaka", it should come quickly. Now is the age of the Internet, so please try searching. We hope that it gives us an opportunity to get to know the history.

Mr. Hiroi Iwai (Oh, Haruka Komosa)

As I was going to see it at the time when the Re Klasik is being held at Isehara's Oyama, I was surprised that I would be allowed to make a leap this year. My mother liked dancing but could not get sick. So I have a desire to have children, and I have been dancing for a long time, and I have been dancing for 33 years this year. This is the first time I'm doing with this member, so I will dance hard while studying. I would be glad if you could be interested in Japanese dance as much as you can through classical music.

Mr. Izumi Hideaki (Harukoma seller, actually a large-sized tiger)

On the same day, the classic day is also the day of the Oiso post school festival. I think that many people come to Oiso for the purpose of coming to see dance. My grandfather is doing Japanese dance and when she is five years old, she goes onIt has been going on for 20 years and it has been going on. It also makes sense to do Odame and Ninomiya familiar contents in the place of Ozu, but since classical and contemporary works in collaboration, I would be glad if you could understand the shape of Japanese dance in many different ways .

・ I am not going to appear this time, but I asked the junior high school student Ikuo Itakura who came to help the rehearsal hall about the charm of Japanese dance.

Itakura Yoshiyo

Recently, robots, AI, and machines are increasing in the world. I think that Japanese dance is unique, it has a depiction of the mind, and that robots have an expressive power that they can never do. I feel that Japanese dance is wonderful only because of the richness of the mind and the classical art with delicate movements that only humans can make.

In addition to the Kabuki dance nagauta "Sakai Oyuka Yuuka Haruka", a project "Hanazakari Forest", in which contemporary music and Japanese dance collaborate, is also scheduled on the day. Here, choreography and a hairstyle are also arranged in a contemporary style and it challenges. I also look forward to seeing how Japanese dance and contemporary music from the Edo period are intertwined. At the end of Re-Classical, the Edo period classic fireworks are launched. This year's Daegu, please enjoy the world of traditional arts with plenty.
