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
