能楽鑑賞会

高等学校 2020年11月05日(木)

11月4日(水)高一能楽鑑賞会が講堂で行われました。鎌倉能舞台の中森貫太さんによる能についての解説から始まり、狂言『柿山伏』と能『経正』を鑑賞しました。今年はコロナ禍における対応ということで、長谷の能舞台に伺っての観能はかなわなかったのは残念でしたが、この状況下に作られたという移動用舞台での演能は大変素晴らしく、たちまちのうちに幽玄の世界にいざなわれました。最後の狂言体験ワークショップでは、クラスで2名ずつ舞台に上がり、狂言の基本姿勢について教えていただきました。さらに学年全体で狂言の柿を食べる所作や笑いの所作を体験しました。日本の古典芸能について学ぶ貴重な機会となったことと思います。
今回、ネイティブの先生方も鑑賞されました。その感想も掲載いたします。

I had never seen a Kyogen or a Noh performance before. I found the costume designs and characters were quite intricate. It was a little difficult for me to understand portions of the Kyogen performance of Kaki Yamabushi due to it being in “old fashioned” Japanese. I enjoyed the antics of the young monk in training as the farmer tricked him into making a fool out of himself. The Noh performance felt far more dramatic and quite darker in tone. It was very useful to have guidance of the Noh performance in English because dialogue was mainly sung. I enjoyed the explanation of the tachikata and found the fluidity of the shite actors quite impressive. Overall it was a wonderful performance and it opened my mind to older Japanese arts that I have overlooked before.

I really enjoyed watching the play. I was surprised that even though the performers were not in a Noh performance theatre, the play was still performed excellently. The voices of the actors were amazing – they had so much control of their voices. Also, I was glad to see that an English description was also provided. This really helped me to understand the concept of the Noh performance. I was really moved by the story and the beauty of the performance. From the music, to the outfits, to the stage, everything was wonderful. Thank you.
