日本舞踊とは

What is Nihon Buyo?

 

 

 

 

宮廷の祭祀に奉納される雅楽・舞楽や民間の祭礼の神楽・田楽、民衆の娯楽や儀式などのための念仏踊り・盆踊りなどの民族芸能ではなく、舞台芸術として1つの形をなしている。

Nihon Buyo has been improved as performing art on stage and that is the different point from most traditional dances such as Gagaku or Bugaku performed at the imperial court, Kagura or Dengaku performed at the sacred festival, or the folk dances such as Nenbutsu Odori or Bon Odori which people dance at the local festival or ceremonies.

 

 

 

 

 

400年近い歴史があり、出雲阿国の阿国歌舞伎が京都で成功をおさめたのが歌舞伎の原型とされ、若衆歌舞伎・野郎歌舞伎など様々な形に変化していき元禄時代ころに舞踊も(所作事)などとしてかたちをなし、伝統芸能の1つでもある能の動き・足さばきなどや様々な芸能の動きなどの要素が形を変え含まれ、代表的な日本の伝統芸能の1つとして確立している

Nihon Buyo has almost 400 years history. It is said that Izumo no Okuni’s performance in Kyoto is the origin of Kabuki and it has been changing its style to Wakasyu Kabuki or Yaro Kabuki. In the Genroku era, the dance was improved into its own unique postures taking influence of Noh which is also one of the Japanese traditional dances.

 

 

 

 

 

日本舞踊は歌舞伎舞踊であり歌舞伎とともに歩み続けている。

The history of Nihon Buyo is always together with the history of Kabuki.

 

 

 

 

 

日本舞踊の衣装は着物です。着物は日本の民族衣装というだけでなく、日本舞踊の表現を支えています。 人体の曲線を覆い、手足のなめらかな表現を際立たせることができます

The costume of Nihon Buyo is Kimono. Kimono is not only the Japanese traditional clothing but also an important element of expression of Nihon Buyo. Kimono covers curved line of human body and emphasizes dancerʼs exquisite movement of their arms and legs.

素踊り

Suodori

 

素踊りとは(素)とも言い、化粧・かつら・豪華な衣装・舞台装置などを用いず、衣装は紋付(黒や色紋付)と袴(様々な色)に化粧はせず舞台装置も基本的に、屏風・色紙・大道具の背景に絵を描いて(立ち木など舞台装置で行う場合もあり)舞台装置とし、すべて簡略的?であるが、それゆえ体をすべて使い表現し、本来あるべき(表現する上でのもの)ものがないと言う大変難しい条件のうえで踊り演じ伝えなければいけない。

Suodori is also called “Su” which means dance without wearing special costumes, makeup, wigs or masks. The costume is Montsuki-hakama (formal kimono with family crest symbol with a separated skirt) and with no makeup. The stage setting is also simple, with a folding screen or a big painted screen, sometimes with standing trees. Because of those simple surroundings, the dancers must express everything with their dance only and that is why Suodori requires the great skills of dancers.
