Uchitomoude The kannushi (shrine priest) and miko (shrine maiden) of Ise Grand Shrine dance for the imperial envoy, who has come from Kyoto to visit the shrine. The performance is a prayer for peace and also extols the virtues of the shrine deity. Enjoy a performance in the inimitably resplendent and agile Kongo style.
Tamatori Ama Fusasaki, a high-ranking minister, comes to Shikoku to hold a memorial service for his dead mother. By chance he meets an ama (female pearl diver) and hears a sublime tale of maternal love and dedication. Strongly influenced by Noh and Bunraku, this remarkable performance conveys the quintessence of the Onoe school style of Kyoto Buyo.
Musume Dojo-ji Based on the Noh play “Dojoji,” this is a major work in the Kabuki Buyo canon that is said to be the pinnacle of Onnagata Buyo (dance performed by men playing women’s roles). It weaves a dazzling tapestry of women and love through colorful costumes and props.
