A unit of male dancers aiming to popularize and create new forms of Japanese dance -Kou no Kai-
The second junior training project!
This performance was called the [Junior Training Project Performance], a project centered on “passing on to the next generation”. It was held in Ginza, Tokyo last year and was very well received. Arc no Kai & Junior Appears! !
“Young Lion”
Arc no Kai, which resonated with the original music of Wakajishikai, a group of young Japanese music musicians formed across different schools, choreographed “Sanbaso”, which is danced while praying for a good harvest and the elimination of epidemics, and “Ombashira”. It has been performed as many times as the festival. Looking to the future of traditional culture, we will dance freshly.
“Two Tomoe”
“Futatsumo” means Kuranosuke Oishi, the family crest of the Oishi family. A Japanese dance adaptation of the famous “Nanth Danme” and “Eleventh Danme” from “Kanadehon Chushingura.” The scene where Kuranosuke indulges himself in entertainment at the Gion Ichiriki Chaya while preparing for the raid and bargaining, and the climax of the raid are expressed through suodori and group dances.
From calm seas to whirlpools. In the lively Awa Odori dance, the dragon god who lives in the whirlpools appears and dances together. Returning to the calm sea, the pilgrimage continues… It was composed by Wakajishi-kai and choreographed by Ko-no-kai, with motifs of various sights seen by pilgrims. This time, the juniors will challenge boldly.
“Onbashira Festival”
A representative work of Ako no Kai with the motif of the strange festival “Onbashira Festival” handed down in Suwa City, Nagano Prefecture. The passion of men who put their lives on the line for prayers to the gods and festivals is transformed into a dance using Kodo music. As a creative work of Japanese dance, it has been performed nearly 80 times across the country, and has received a great response.
Japanese Dancers Group Ako no Kai
In the Japanese dance world, where there are many schools with different characteristics, a unit of male dancers who are active at the forefront gathered together beyond the school with the passion of “Let’s connect the splendor of Japanese dance to the future”. . Since its formation in 1998, the group has released powerful new dances one after another based on the “suodori” that only wears a montsuki and hakama. Since last year, he has been actively engaged in a wide range of popularization activities, such as launching the “Arc no Kai Junior Training Project” and starting to train the next generation of Japanese dancers. The direction and quality of its activities have received high praise from various quarters and are attracting hot attention.
