Japanese Theatre in the 21st Century
A Japan 2001 project
Welcome to the Japanese Theatre in the 21st Century website.
About this Project
Japanese Theatre in the 21st Century began with an international symposium held at the University of Edinburgh and Royal Museum of Scotland from 2nd to 6th July, 2001. This event brought together performers, scholars, and members of the local community concerned with Japanese theatre, with the following aims:
  • to build on existing links between academics and performers in Japanese theatre to foster an international network in the field to disseminate knowledge about Japanese culture in the broader community
  • Its programme combined workshops and performances by actors, dancers and musicians involved in or influenced by Japanese theatre with academic lectures and presentations by scholars from an international field. Presentations and performances focussed on traditional and modern genres and contemporary approaches to understanding them intellectually, expressing them on stage and appreciating them from the audience viewpoint. Following on from the symposium, and to further its original aims, this website is being maintained as a point of contact and source of information on Japanese theatre.

    The world of japanese kabuki theatre is one shrouded in mystery; one which veryfew outsiders, and especially Westerners have been privileged to see.
    Hierarchy in the Japanese kabuki theatre
    Matazo Nakamura's book Kabuki Backstage, Onstage shows how deeply rooted the art of kabuki theatre is in Japanese culture and history, and yet how completely separate it remains from the everyday life of most modern Japanese. As the only actor to have entered the world of kabuki from an outside life (unrelated to the theatre), Matazo offers an exciting and intriguing look into the inner workings and traditions of the theatre and its actors, a world closed to most Japanese, and especially to foreigners. bodyOffer(25635) However, at the same time, this respect for one's elders and their traditions is a compelling and interesting facet of Japanese society, because it shows us something that American society lacks. Even though Matazo may disagree with the system, it is that same system he must uphold in order to remain in his privileged position, while still subtly pushing for changes in order to keep kabuki alive. Overall, this book is extremely effective in familiarizing the reader with the intricacies of the world of the kabuki actors and their relation to Japanese society through comparison and contrast and the general style and layout of the text.

    to establish groundbreaking academic disciplines in the study of traditional japanesetheatre arts, namely, Noh and Kyogen, NingyoJyoruri, kabuki and japanese
    Top Theatre Research Center Education and Research Events ... For more information Traditional Japanese Theatre studies The Promotion of Traditional Japanese Theatre studies This programme aims to establish groundbreaking academic disciplines in the study of traditional Japanese theatre arts, namely, Noh and Kyogen, Ningyo-Jyoruri, Kabuki and Japanese dancing (Nihon-buyo), combining studies on form, style and technique practiced for (actual) performance with those on the literary analysis of texts.
    In this programme, we aim to undertake such research activities as the revival of historically famous masterpieces, the restoration of performance techniques that are no longer practiced, and the stage production of rarely performed works, in collaboration with artists possessing their own traditional expertise. To achieve this, analytical studies of texts and their variants will be conducted to create a coherent foundation for future research activities; performance media and techniques will also be analysed based on available film and sound source materials.
    This research programme consists of the following nine projects: Studies on the Revival and Reproduction of Traditional Japanese Theatre Arts
    (1) Noh and Kyogen (Coordinator: Mikio TAKEMOTO)
    (2) Ningyo-Jyoruri and Bunraku (Coordinator: Mikiko UCHIYAMA)
    (3) Kabuki and Japanese dance (Coordinator: Hideo FURUIDO) Studies on Basic Research for the Revival and Reproduction of Japanese Theatre Arts

    Kabuki Warriors: Japanese transvestite theatre game headed for Xbox
    That caught your eye didnit it. Like a bit of lady-boy do you? Yeah, well so do we. Nothing wrong with that. But it's confusing though isnit it? These look like rock-hard swordsmen, not fellas dressed up as women. It makes us feel dirty
    And the name, Kabuki Warriors, it all sounds so macho. We looked up Kabuki, assuming it must be a demonic ninja or something. I mean, just look at those evil faces. So imagine our surprise when we read this… iThough Kabuki was created by a woman, since early on all roles have been taken by men. Men who play the roles of women are referred to as eonnagatai or female role specialists.iThere you go. Cross-dressing. Perhaps the Worldis first transvestite game. Although we canit be sure, after all, thereis some pretty deviant games available in Japan. Thatis what we heard, anyway. Kabuki Warriors has a November 2001 release date set for the US. No UK date has been announced, but rumours it will sport the eIt Ainit Half Hot Mumi licence havenit been denied.

    pp. 155-180 Although there are well over 250 plays in the kabuki katsureki masterpiece, Takatoki . As she notes, such plays were originally created during the Meiji era to bring kabuki a step closer to the realism of the modern theatre believed to exist in the West. What remains of the play itself, however, is replete with enough of kabuki Faith Bach has her D.Phil. in kabuki Manyoshu poetry from the University of Minnesota.

    pp. 181-229 In the spring of 1997, the editor of ATJ witnessed a production of this play at New York’s La MaMa E.T.C. and was immediately interested in publishing it. The play is interesting on several levels: it has a strong dramatic action, concerns an important problem in the transition of Japanese drama from traditional forms to modern ones, reveals the kind of serious misunderstandings that occur when cultures collide, allows for exciting "fusion" scenes in which Shakespeare is produced kabuki -style, and brings to the stage several real-life
