Theatrical festival ”
FESTA Matsumoto 2022 has started. Kazumi Kushida, general director of the Matsumoto Performing Arts Center, has long envisioned a theater festival that will bring together theater and dance performances. With Matsumoto Performing Arts Center as the main venue, the city area is likened to a single theater, based on the desire for people to enjoy it as a thing.

The performers and directors of each performance, such as Fumiyo Kohinata and Tetsuya Chiba, who directed “Betsuyaku Minoru Trilogy,” introduced their own performances. The performers of “Grasshopper’s Dinner Party” and the Isazu Quartet performed the music in the play, and the performers of the performance and many people who stopped in the city became one with the music. We had a lot of fun at the celebration eve for the opening of “FESTA Matsumoto 2022”. [Image 2

I think it would be nice if you could find a way to enjoy it.” commented.

However, not to mention the gems of theatrical works such as Tetsuya Chiba’s “Betsuyaku Minoru Trilogy” and the six stories “Mitzaro’s Crow” presented by the theater unit Grass919 led by Hiroshi Omori, Yasutake Shimaji and Sakai Contemporary dance “Toshishun-” by nano unit Altneu, based on Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s masterpiece, selected dance works created by Japan’s leading choreographers during the corona crisis.

For the first time since the premiere at On Theater Jiyu Gekijyo in 1994, three members, Hiroshi Omori and Fumiyo Kohinata, who were members at that time, are together. Kushida’s son, Kushida Twelfth Night, and Kohinata Fumiyo’s eldest son, Kohinata Seiichi, also appear, and the two parent-child co-stars are also worth seeing. On September 30th (Friday), “Skapan” will be performed at Matsumoto Performing Arts Center as a preview performance. At the press conference held the day before, Kushida, Omori, and Kohinata made comments. “I’m just happy to have this combination. I don’t think it’s possible to be able to do this with friends who have the same aspirations as Jiyu Gekijyo, which I’ve worked hard to create. I think it’s a happy thing.” (Kushida) , “If I can successfully link to the indescribable thrilling world of ‘Skapan’ that Mr. Kushida is making.” I want to stand there.” (Kohinata) answered the question in a candid atmosphere unique to the three of them, who have a deep and long relationship as former members of On Theater Jiyu Gekijo.

                                         Photographed by: Takeshi Yamada This time, we have received a report from theater journalist Fumiko Kawazoe, who saw the attention-grabbing “Skapan”.
On September 30th, just before the opening of “FESTA Matsumoto 2022” where Kazumi Kushida (general director of Matsumoto Performing Arts Center) serves as general director, a preview performance of “Skapan” was held.
When the theater gets dark, I hear the voice of seagulls and the rustle from afar. As the light enters, a crowd of expressionless people appear like dolls from within the haze, passing each other. A small space gradually transforms into the port town of Naples, where the stage is set, and the audience is slowly invited into this world. The color of the sky, the amount of light, and the gradual change in the shape of the clouds, the feeling of “not one color” is
synchronized with the feeling of covering this Kushida version of “Skapan”.
The highlight of the original work by Moliere is that the well-spoken and worldly-skilled Sukapan helps young people find love, and takes advantage of two arrogant rich men to thwart them. But Kushida’s version is not just an abysmal comedy. Skapan plays pranks, makes a fuss, and behaves cheerfully when he is with people, but when he returns to his kennel-like house and spends time alone, you can catch a glimpse of his loneliness and poverty. The “feeling of life” of a man living at the bottom of the story, which is inserted in between, gives shadows to the story. The scene where Skapan dances alone in silence while wearing an Arlecchino mask (a servant and clown in the comedy “Commedia dell’arte”, which was born in Italy around the 16th century) is also impressive. The music of nomadic people that flows everywhere reminds us of the hard life of Skapan, who has lived without roots. The Brecht curtain, which was quickly pulled from side to side and changed the scene, gave the stage speed and rhythm. It’s also charming when someone shows their face for a moment.) Hiroshi Omori (as Argant) and Fumiyo Kohinata (as Geront), who have worked together with Kushida on numerous stage performances as former members of On Theater Jiyu Gekijyo, will also appear. Sukapan Kushida (a surprisingly 80-year-old!), who moves lightly, rolls around, and talks a lot, and the tasteful exchanges between these misers who have a dull expression from beginning to end are humorous and excite the audience. Two couples, Octave (Seiichi Kohinata) & Iassant (Hina Yukawa), Leandre (Juniya Kushida) & Zerbinetto (Maho Minamoto), who are crazy about love and enjoying youth, are also blind. Inviting laughter with a ferocious move. Life goes by fast… these
rosy-cheeked children will soon grow up! This time, it is also a unique stage where two parent-child groups, Kushida and Kohinata, and Kohinata and their parents, have performed together. In addition, TC Alp members such as Taku Takei, Takashi Hosokawa, and Naoko Shimoji, who have been working under Kushida since they were young, clearly showed their individuality,
I was happy to see him playing an active role as a reliable fighting force. It is a sitting/casting that naturally leads to thinking about “the time of life”.
Young people who can’t say no when asked, and wealthy people who are ruthless to their servants. If you try to expand the cruel and egoistic part of human beings like a caricature, here too, the “back and forth of light and shadow” will have a tingling effect
everywhere, giving you an indescribable sense of reality, a world that exists in any era. to reflect the reality of It’s a happy ending, and the picture-perfect happy ending is mixed with a bit of bitterness. I’ll keep the details a secret for those who watch the stage, but this is another “not one color” ending.

The first half of the performance schedule will be held in the small hall of the Matsumoto Performing Arts Center, and the second half will be transformed into an outdoor theater at Matsumoto Castle’s Otemon Masugata Square. Even with the same performance, the atmosphere changes drastically, and you can enjoy the atmosphere and sounds of the city that change depending on the time of day in the city of Matsumoto as the sun goes down. By all means, I would like you to enjoy it with Matsumoto in autumn.
