When the opening ceremony is over, it is a performance of each work immediately. The first appearance is "Gekidan 820 Mfg.-Annex" (Yokohama), ranked first in Qualifying B-block. Under the moonlight they played, three mysterious men and men with different positions and occupations, who surrounded a bonfire in a dark forest, had their mysterious past and a poor present. Dark and serious works to be released. I breathed in insane acts and mysterious developments where malice and good intentions are mixed.

The second place was "Cyreactors" (Odawara) 's "Don't Do It", winning the first place in the qualifying A block. There is a serious image when you look at the title, but the protagonist (?) Of this work is how familiar it! (Of course, that's the "teeth"!) Mazakon man who is afraid to go to the dentist despite suffering from the incongruity of the back teeth, "It will be a serious thing because it becomes a toothache if I do not get out of it now The pop and speedy conversation play with the cause of the pain, warning and warning that continued to warn, was caught in the whirlpool of laughter in the midst of the audience.

The third appearance was "21g" (Hiyoshi), who played as a wild card for qualifying B-block 2nd. 21g is a unit derived from the theater circle of Keio University, and will end its activities in the future, so this is the last chance for the challenge to "Theatrical King Kanagawa". In "Heiji Onoku", which depicts the pursuit of writers and female editors who do not keep the deadline, he showed a full-fledged youthful performance.

The final match for the final match is the "voice" played by "Mojyajaja Head and Spatula Glasses" (Yokohama) in the first qualifying C block. This work depicts a woman who is betting her life on dance, dancing in an attempt to complete a dance while talking with herself in a mirror that speaks another voice of her mind. The audience was involuntarily drawn to the full-scale dance performance and serious performance that the two actresses make a pair and show each other while sometimes intertwining.

Interview with "The Play King Kanagawa V" Winner "Reactors"
--- The Reactors has been participating for four consecutive years since "Theatrical King Kanagawa II". Finally the fifth generation "Theatrical King Kanagawa" has won the seat. congratulations.
Kazuto : Thank you very much !!
From the left, Mr. Oshima, Mr. Ikeda, Mr. Kimura
-The "Shinnouchi ni" announced this time is a terrific human comedy created by Oshima-san's Wisdom and Ikeda-san's dentist-hate wisdom-loving Wisdom's Wisdom, Kimura's various sub-characters. I was also surprised by the humorous idea of persuasive personification. Why was Oshima, the author and director, came up with this subject?
Oshima : This year, I really overcame my wisdom. It is all a realistic experience, with the savings of the dentist who came out in the play, and the details of breaking the wisdom tooth that had grown sideways into two and breaking it in half. In addition, it is also a true story of the present progressive type that the dentist says that it is better to remove another tooth and remove it. Of course, I have not pulled out yet! (Lol)
Kimura : As in the play, you're still running away, it's difficult (laughs).
-What did you think of the two actors who received such a unique script?
Kimura : Until now, when I came to "Theatrical King Kanagawa", I had a lot of serious stories. Last year's "sucked type" is also the previous "do not do, do not do, can not do it, anymore. "I was surprised at first because it was a story dealing with life and death. He said, "Even though it's an important 'play king', are you so comical? Are you serious?" (Lol).
Ikedaya : When I heard only the story, I was really surprised to find that it was a tooth (laugh). But when the script went up, it was a fun content for the performer, so I was excited to come to practice.
Oshima : There is a regret that I did not finish the championship for the first time in the final game for the first time last year, and this will be the last, "Let's do what I like because I can say Conte, with the customers I tried to comedy "100% laugh" comedy. During the rehearsal as well, consult with other members of the theater and brush the script. I think that “in the middle of no work” was something that all the theater members were made together.
Ikedaya : ... It may be the first time to see Oshima, which appreciates the members so honestly (wry smile).
―― Even in the final game, the audience laughed, but did you get much response from qualifying?
Oshima : Yes, there was. But when I commented on qualifying, I was told that it would be better if Setosan had a scene with Kimura and three people, as well as the scene with me and Ikeya. Until last year, I had a strange pride in myself and I was not asked to comment on the qualifying, but for the first time this time I thought "I'm right!"
--That was tough, huh. In the first place, the rules of the drama king Kanagawa are determined in detail, such as the performance time and the number of performers, so you need to have a different consciousness and sense from your regular performances, right?
Kimura : That's right. Usually there is no chance to play for 20 minutes, so it's fun to pull on acting.
Ikedaya : If you usually play for 60 minutes and 90 minutes, there will be areas where you can not reach your eyes. It is fun that "Theatrical King Kanagawa" has a short time, and as an actor, it makes it possible to make more and more detailed parts with each practice.

Oshima : As a writer, there are aspects where writing is easier if there are restrictions. You can change it at your own discretion. However ... it is too deep and it is difficult to express what and how. In that sense, I think it was good to focus on the play that you can laugh for only 20 minutes this time. As an actor, it is much more difficult to draw about the character in the scale of 20 minutes, so it is difficult to use imagination more than a normal play.
-And, with this "do not work", next March, we will participate in the "Kanagawa Kamome Short Theater Festival" as a representative of Kanagawa. How would you like to fight next?
Kimura : To be honest, I still haven't realized my feelings yet ... (wry smile). However, the last "Kanagawa Kamome Short Theater Festival" was on stage as an MC, but I was not able to be an actor, so I am very happy!
Oshima : You seem to have realized it now (laughs).
Ikeya : And from here, I will continue my training for next year, so I will never forget my initial intention to "make the audience entertained," and I will do my best.
Oshima : Next is the large studio of the KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theater, so the stage is wide. As for the production using sketchbook, it is necessary to devise for the big stage. In terms of content, the part pointed out in the final comment ... I want to make more adjustments to the drama by making more expression of fear when the wisdom tooth is pulled out. And more simply, bigI hope I can deliver a laugh using my body. After this, I'm glad if more people will come to see our plays, so if you do this, brush your teeth firmly so that "does not do it" will be the representative work of the Reactors. want to go! (Lol)
"Theatrical king Kanagawa" executive chairperson, Yasufumi Nakayama (theater 045 syndicate) interview
-First of all, was it possible to look back on "Gekijo Kanagawa V" where a new drama king was born?
Nakayama : The start of "Theatrical King Kanagawa", which began in 2012, will be held in Kanagawa from the Japanese dramatist association Tokai section, the parent of "Theatrical King", which was held in Nagakute City, Aichi Prefecture. It is an opportunity to have you request. At that time, Ms. Liu said, "It is nonsense to place the score in the theater by nature, and there is no preference for the work. But if you go on five times, you will definitely grow young artists who will win the prize."
―― That "fifth" has finally come this year.
Nakayama : That's right. So what I thought was the best this time was that the customers watched the play very flat. After five years, both the audience and the creator have become familiar with the enjoyment and system unique to "Theatrical King". If it recorded a full seat for the first time this yearI think that also appeared in the mobilization results.
―― Has "the play king Kanagawa" taken root in the area, has the theater scene in Kanagawa changed?
Nakayama : Yes. In fact, while continuing, young people are participating more and more, and the exchange between the theater parties is increasing is one of the things that changed with "King King". As one of the participants working in Yokohama, I received the title of the first and second generation play king Kanagawa, but Oda-kun, who won this year, is home to Odawara. Without this event I had no opportunity to meet. In particular, the deepening of regional exchanges among young generations is also good for future Kanagawa theatre. With this as a starting point, you can expect developments in which different theater companies in different activity areas will perform together.
―― There were comments from the judges that they were improving year by year, but how do you feel about the content?
Nakayama : Mr. Hozumi Gota also said on the stage, but because the theater system for "Theatrical King" has a lot of restrictions, there is a way of proper fighting. In that sense, it has become possible for the participating groups to devise their ideas for this event. I think that is connected to the results of this time Reactors, Oshima-kun and others.
―― Mr. Nakayama, who has been an executive committee member for five years, how do you want "Gekioh Kanagawa" to develop in the future?
Nakayama : At the last greeting, Oshima-kun said, "If you want to be the sixth generation play king, come to Odawara to get Skajan," but since Yokohama has been held for a long time, Odawara, I think it's interesting to do in Sagamihara, Atsugi and other cities in Kanagawa Prefecture. As an individual, by all means in Hakone. Theatrical contest using the banquet room of the hot spring hotel, isn't it fun?(Lol)
--- It's new!
Nakayama : After five years, I would like to try more new things for "Theatrical King Kanagawa". The Executive Committee, which our generation has been working on, I think it would be nice if Oshima-kun, who is in the middle of his twenties, will be moving around. I don't have much money because this is a hand-made event (laughs), but I would like to cherish the feeling that it's an event I'm going to create as a respect for the main house "Theatrical King".
--- Even if you are the first, second generation drama king Nakayama himself, I hope that this event will continue in the future.
Nakayama : Of course. This time, I was unable to receive the award, “Under the Moonlight,” which I was involved in the production, but I would like to regain the seat of the play king (laughs). As a single theater fan, I think "King Play Kanagawa" is a very interesting event. As it can be enjoyed as a showcase of various groups with various genres, I would like to see the performances of various theater companies and artists as a starting point here, and enliven the Kanagawa theater scene. In the finals and qualifying, there is a change in the same program, so I hope you can see it from qualifying next time.
