“Mystery” by Koki Miura
I think that one of the highlights in “Kodo One Earth Tour: Mystery” is the lion dance, Shishimai. The head is operated by Kosuke Urushikubo, who was an apprentice with me.
To sum it up in one word, it’s “cute.”
When you think of a lion dance in Japan, it may conjure images of a valiant beast dancing at a festival… but this Shishimai is a little different to that… or perhaps it’s quite different?
Please come along and see how Kosuke’s Shishimai interacts with the four female performers on stage.
Another piece to watch for Ajara, which I perform with Tetsumi Hanaoka, who is one year my senior, and Jun Jidai, who was an apprentice with me. In fact, the three of us have known each other since our high school days, so we know & understand each other very well. I would like to show you our trio’s synchronization in this piece. I think you’ll also enjoy seeing the performers operate the lighting under the new artistic direction of this piece!
