Kabuki is a traditional Japanese form of theater with its origins in the Edo period . Kabuki, in contrast to the older surviving Japanese art forms such as No , was the popular culture of the townspeople and not of the higher social classes. Kabuki plays are about historical events, moral conflicts in love relationships and the like. The actors use an old fashioned language which is difficult to understand even for some Japanese people. They speak in a monotonous voice and are accompanied by traditional Japanese instruments The kabuki stage (kabuki no butai) is a rotating stage and is further equipped with several gadgets like trapdoors through which the actors can appear and disappear. Another speciality of the kabuki stage is a footbridge (hanamichi) that leads through the audience.

Course Overview Activities Schedule Activity Report 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: Course Overview Activities Schedule Activity Report

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.

E-Mail Group
Noh Theatre
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).

14. EALC E473 1601 History Of Japanese Theatre And Drama
This course will situate kabuki in Japan s theatre history as well as in world dramaby examining specific plays in comparison with examples drawn from outside
NO KNOWLEDGE OF JAPANESE LANGUAGE OR CULTURE IS REQUIRED. Topic: Kabuki: Text and Performance While the classic noh theatre continued to be one of the chief entertainments of the noble and samurai classes since the middle ages, kabuki developed as a colorful and powerful genre of popular theatre during the seventeenth century. Today, just as the noh continues to flourish as part of Japan's elite culture, kabuki maintains its strong hold of the popular audience. In the recent decades, kabuki has gone global in the sense that many plays have been translated into foreign languages, a number of productions involving top stars have taken place in various parts of the world, and Americans and others have even studied to perform kabuki in English. This course will situate kabuki in Japan's theatre history as well as in world drama by examining specific plays in comparison with examples drawn from outside. Rather than surveying the history of kabuki, the course will emphasize close reading of dramatic texts and the study of the aspects of performance. The plays to be studied will represent the periods between early seventeenth century and the mid nineteenth century. The emphasis will be placed on character types (the hero, the beauty, the criminal, and the ghost, for example), literary techniques and theatrical conventions (dance, song, the mie pose, the mistaken identity, the role change, and sword fights, for example). All the texts will be read in English, each play represented by one complete scene. One or more performances of each scene will be shown on VCR. There will be a midterm examination, an oral presentation, and a final exam or a term paper (the choice will be left to individual students). Assignments will be different in nature and scope for graduate students as they are expected to work on individual research projects throughout the semester. Those who are enrolled in this course for credits in Japanese are expected to read a number of materials in the original and work individually with the instructor. Students are encouraged to organize an informal performance of one act/scene of a Japanese play in English toward the end of the semester. This course is for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. No knowledge of Japanese language/ culture is required but some basic knowledge of Asian cultures or of the history of Western drama will be useful for success in the course.

Kabuki theatre history
Kabuki is the most famous of the forms of Japanese theatre. Spoken and sung in 'old Japanese', even the Japanese themselves find it difficult to understand. It is a little like a Japanese version of Shakespeare performed at the opera and the performances last a number of hours. The word 'kabuki' is made of three characters in Japanese: 'ka' meaning 'songs', 'bu' meaning 'dance' and 'ki' meaning 'skill'. Kabuki is performed at a special theatre and the displays are usually overwhelming in their use of colour, makeup and stylised movements. The revolving stage and trapdoors mean that impressive entrances and exits occur throughout the performance. bodyOffer(1471) The history In 1603, the original kabuki players were all women who danced onstage and apparently performed other services offstage. As the 17th century progressed, women were no longer permitted to perform because it was thought that they were having a corrupting effect of the spectators. Young attractive boys began to play both male and female roles and caused as much havoc as the women had, so kabuki was actually banned for a time in the mid 1600s. Finally, older men were allowed to perform although they had to shave the tops of their heads so that audience members would not be tempted by them. Ironically, this led to an enormous focus on the importance of skill rather than looks as these men played both male and female, young and old roles.

A wonderful combination of ancient traditions and cutting-edge modern life, Japan has it all. It is one of the world’s most fascinating places to visit as many wonders and revelation await you. You can try your hand at Origami, the popular art of paper folding, or take a walk down the serene paths of a temple or you may step into a theatre and take in a performance - the Kabuki Theatre is a must see in Japan as it is the most famous of the traditional Japanese theatres and depicts one of the various aspects of performing arts. Kabuki originated in the Edo period and was more popular with the lower social class as compared to the higher social classes. The word 'Kabuki' is composed of three Japanese characters: 'ka' meaning 'songs', 'bu' meaning 'dance' and 'ki' meaning 'skill'. Its more likely a Japanese version of Shakespeare’s plays being performed in an Opera. But Kabuki is more entertaining, energetic and awesome in the use of color, makeup, movements and often other spectacular effects. The passion for Kabuki Theatre began with first performance by the shrine dancer Okuni at Kyoto in 1603. This performance was a unique blend of folk dance and religious dance and soon became popular with the lower classes. In the early phase of the 17

Japanese Theatre
What do you know about Japanese theatre? Perhaps you have heard of kabuki, with its colourful costumes and striking make-up. Kabuki is just one of several types of traditional theatre in Japan. The noh theatre is older than kabuki - similar in some ways but with important differences. Bunraku is the puppet theatre: some of the stories are the same as those used in kabuki and noh, and the costumes the puppets wear are similar to those worn by the actors in noh and kabuki. This webpage will introduce some important features of traditional theatre, looking at noh, kabuki and bunraku. To complete the activities, you will need to use the internet.
The Stage
When you go to the theatre in this country, actors are usually on stage some distance away from the audience, often above them. It is usually in front of the audience. Japanese theatre stages are a little different.
The noh theatre has a stage with a permanent backdrop, showing a pine tree. It has a corridor from the dressing rooms to the stage which is open, ie. the audience can see the actors walking along it before they get on stage. So the actor is on show, but not yet part of the action.
How should the actor behave when walking along the open corridor? Should he be already in costume, or still fastening his clothes? Should he walk calmly along or is it ok to rush on at the last minute? Imagine you are watching a play. How would you feel about seeing actors before they come on stage? Would it have an effect on the play?
