On Sunday, September 18, JPA had a Nihon Buyo performance and lecture (Yukata Kai) with many spectators. Than you.

JPA President, Yuko Hamada gave a briefing on Nihon Buyo dance movements and their relevance with Japanese mindsets, which she came to understand through her long dance career.

Dancers were Midori Anami, Akiko Matsumomo,Hatsuko Otsuka, and Yuko Hamada. The show's hair make-up artists were: Mika Saijo, Satoshi Ikeda, and Toshitsugu Kubota.

9月18日(日曜日)JPAは日本舞踊のパフォーマンス・レクチャー「浴衣会」を披露しました。沢山の方々にお越しいただき、感謝しております。

JPAの代表濱田が長年に渡り理解してきた日本舞踊の動きと日本人の心の繋がりや、日本舞踊の女性役を踊る上での動きの特徴を紹介しました。
出演は穴見みどり、松本明子、大塚肇子、ヘアーセットは、西條美佳、池田敏、窪田敏次。

YUKATA KAI 2021
The theme of JPA Yukata Kai this year is "Japanese Dance and Its Movements" featuring the "Dances of Female Roles." We will explain the body use for female roles in Nihon Buyo. The Yukata Kai will feature the performance of the classics, such as Fujimusume, Kyo no Shiki, Mitsumen Komori, Fukagawa Hakkei, and other pieces by Midori Anami, Akiko Matsumoto, Hatsuko Otsuka, and the instructor, Yuko Hamada.
The Yukata Kai session will be conducted in Japanese language only.

浴衣会 2021

japanperformingarts.org/cultural-project/yukata-kai/

日本舞踊等、伝統芸能界ではよく「浴衣会」を夏に行います。夏までにお稽古してきた演目を社中でお披露目する会です。 この度のJPAの「浴衣会」は、日系人会(JAA)のご協力を得まして、踊りを披露するだけではなく、レクチャーをさせていただける事になりました。

日本舞踊とその動き ~ 女性を踊る ~

日本舞踊には大きく分けると男性・中性・女性役があり、それぞれ基本の動きに違いがあります。女性が”女性”を踊る事は簡単だと思われるかもしれませんが、女性役の動きは大変に独特です。また役に年齢設定がある場合は、それなりの年頃の動きがあります。4名の踊り手が披露する演目、京の四季、三つ面子守、梅の馨、黒髪、藤娘、山姥 を通して、動きの詳細を紹介致します。

講演は日系人会の館内で開催しますので、事前に予約を入れて入室される時にワクチン接種の証明書をお見せ下さいませ。証明書をお忘れなく宜しくお願い致します

Performers: Yuko Hamada, Midori Anami, Akiko Matsumoto, Hatsuko Otsuka
Hair Designers: Toshitsugu Kubota, Mika Saijo, Satoshi Ikeda
