Japanese Theatre Click here to go to the bottom of the page. Japanese theatre, as I found out, is amusing. It is divided into three different types. Kabuki*, Noh*, and Bonraku* are the three types of Japanese theatres. Bunraku uses puppets for plays instead of people. There are people involved, of course, but their job is to move the bonraku puppets. Each puppet is about one meter tall and takes three people to handle one. Bunraku is accompanied by Japanese instruments and its music. Okuni, a shrine maiden invented Kabuki in the 17th century with her uniqueness. Kabuki is a theatre art that uses puppets instead of people performing plays. Kabuki was created by a woman, but only men can play the roles in a Kabuki. Noh is the art of both women and men working together to perform dance, drama, music, and poetry in one stage. The chorus is called jiutai and usually consists of eight people. The main character is called the shite. Also this type of theatre was made in the 14th -15th century. This picture shows Kabuki puppets in use Noh is a type of Japanese theatre that involves a lot ot both men and women amateurs to perform, dance, and play music.

Traditional Japanese Theatre
Theatre in Japan is not the same theater that we know in the United States. It’s not even the type of plays that one would expect from Shakespeare or another European Playwright. The culture and traditions in Japan differ greatly from that of Europe and the United States and therefore there theatre is going to be different. This is due to the fact that most of the time theatre tells something about a society and its values and customs (Norma v). Knowledge about a society is available by looking in depth at the arts. In the West we focus on real life and trying to recreate reality. In Japan the theatre is not trying to recreate “real life”. Instead, it is a stylized rhythmic dance focused on attitudes and different facial expressions (Haar 34). Much different than what we are used to in the West, but we are comparing very different cultures.
There are three main types of theatre in traditional Japan: Noh, Bunraku, and Kabuki. Noh began in the 14th century and then was followed by Bunraku and Kabuki late in the 16th century (Norma 22). All three are interrelated yet very different. For example, Bunraku and Kabuki are related, yet Bunraku is a doll theatre and Kabuki is a more evolved version of Noh (Haar 43). The Kabuki is the most popular form of theatre in Japan and resembles the Noh in many ways in similar rhythmic dancing and song. I considered evaluating Kabuki because it is the most popular; however, I am going to focus on Noh, the first of the three theatres, in an effort to unearth traditional Japanese values. After all, “Noh is the very essence of ‘the Japanese soul’” (Komparu xiv).

66. Eisenstein's Eastern Influences
Of particular interest was the japanese kabuki theatre, Sinojapaneseideographic writing and both Chinese and japanese poetry.
Perhaps the greatest influences upon Eisenstein's theories of montage are, somewhat surprisingly, to be found in the cultural icons and artforms of the Far East. Of particular interest was the Japanese Kabuki Theatre, Sino-Japanese ideographic writing and both Chinese and Japanese poetry. Eisenstein's interest in Far-Eastern culture could be traced back to as early as 1920 when, undertaking active service on the Civil War front, he was sent to Moscow where he studied the Japanese language. Although he struggled to grasp its complexities, his studies of Japanese were enough to generate what proved to be an undiminishing admiration of Oriental culture. In his 1929 essay, 'The Unexpected', Eisenstein wrote glowingly of the Kabuki Theatre group which had visited Moscow just a year earlier. He described the group, headed by the internationally renowned Ichikawa Sadanji, as a 'wonderful manifestation of theatrical culture.' Indeed, he was at pains in both 'The Unexpected' and his subsequent essay, 'A Dialectic Approach to Film Form', to laud both the Kabuki theatre and Japanese culture as a whole observing that it adopted as its 'basic nerve', montage. Yet what, in terms of montage, did Eisenstein find so inspirational in the workings of a culture so seemingly divorced from his own? What Eisenstein found in Oriental culture was the near-perfect manifestation of a doctrine which was to underlie his montage theories; the doctrine that art will always function as conflict.

71. Shakespeare's Global Crusade
While King Lear takes place in England, Ninagawa seamlessly weaves aspectsof japanese theatre, namely kabuki and noh, into his interpretation.
Shakespeare's Global Crusade
…from Leonardo DiCaprio to rap to Kabuki, famed actor Michael Maloney reflects on this sudden revival in an exclusive Hanabi interview… Michael Maloney escaped to the bathroom during the first Shakespearean play his parents took him to see. But who could blame him? He was eight, and Shakespeare was boring.
Today, Mr. Maloney, fresh off his superb run as Edgar in Yukio Ninagawa's critically acclaimed production of King Lear, has no less than ten Shakespearean plays to his credit, not to mention appearances in both Kenneth Branagh and Mel Gibson's screen adaptations of Hamlet.
What changed his mind?
After failing to earn a spot in the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1982 (a "golden year" during which the likes of Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren broke onto the scene), Michael worked on more contemporary pieces. It wasn't until 1991, when someone exposed him to a new method of mastering the bard's language, that he truly became "excited about Shakespeare."
Unfortunately, the majority of us never get the opportunity to read Shakespeare outside of English class, and even then, much of his language remains nothing more than cryptic messages. Why, then, has Shakespeare suddenly become so popular?

K abuki is a traditional form of Japanese theater. It was founded early in the 17th century by Okuni , a shrine maiden who brought her unique and lively dance style to the dry river beds of the ancient capital of Kyoto, and over the next 300 years developed into a sophisticated, highly stylized form of theater.
Though 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 "onnagata" female role specialists. Ichimura Manjiro , an actor who actively participates in this page, is an "onnagata".
Kabuki plays and dances may be about grand historical events or the everyday life of people in the Edo period (1600-1868). For each play, though, the sets, music, costumes and other factors combine to create the fantastic world of Kabuki. We hope you enjoy exploring this page.

FROM THE EDITOR, p. iii PLAYS Yoritomo's Death: A Shin Kabuki Play by Mayama Seika
Translated and introduced by Brian Powell, p. 1 Kabuki, while being one of Japan's three great classical theatre genres, has also benefited from dramatic works written especially for it by a variety of playwrights in the modern period. These are referred to as shin kabuki or "new kabuki." Mayama Seika is one of the best known shin-kabuki playwrights, and many of the plays he wrote in the 1920s and 1930s are still performed today. He is noted for introducing dense dialogue into kabuki, but he was also a practical playwright who knew well the capabilities of the actors for whom he was writing. Yoritomo's Death focuses on the efforts of the shogun Yoriie (1182-1204) to learn the truth about how his father, the great general and first shogun Yoritomo, met his death. We the audience know, because we are told in Scene 1, and three other people close to Yoriie know, but Yoriie himself does not know. For him discovering the truth becomes an obsession, and his inability to force or persuade the three to tell him proves to him that his political and military power, clearly demonstrated at the beginning of Scene 2, is illusory. And because he has chosen to define himself as an individual by his acquisition of this piece of knowledge, it also destroys him as a person. Brian Powell has written widely on various aspects of modern Japanese theatre and is the author of a monograph on Mayama Seika. He teaches Japanese theatre and literature at Oxford University.

Yukio Ninagawa: Tokyo as theatre

An interview with Japan's celebrated theatre director
My productions
"When people overseas think of Japanese theatre, it's usually of the traditional genres of noh and kabuki. But when they think of Japan as a whole, the first things that are likely to come to mind are Honda and Sony. Or maybe they think of a Ninagawa production! It's certainly true that my shows have achieved considerable success in Europe. Theatre people of my generation studied both the Japanese classics and European drama. What I try to do is to create a synthesis of the two, something different that is provoking yet tasteful."
Japanese actors
"Japanese actors are good at performing in a way that blends stylization and naturalism."
The language barrier
"I don't think it's hard for me to communicate with European actors. In fact, I think I'm one of the few foreign directors who finds it easy. I also use interpreters and translators who think the way I do and the people I work with call them 'Ninagawa's shadows.' But I can also communicate through other means than words alone. Eye contact, for instance, is very important." My favorite productions "My Shakespeare productions, such as Macbeth, are among my favorites since they've been appreciated by audiences outside Japan. In a way, Japan is like a village. If you want to remain there in peace and quiet, you can. But I think it's important to keep asking yourself who you are and to take a more inclusive and universal approach. I look forward to working again in London."
