久良岐での過去の動画です(Take a look at our videos!)

This video is made for people who are not familiar with noh. The highlights of the play are easily understandable as the camera moves freely on the stage to get close to the noteworthy points with a plain commentary. The video also adds modern, daring and plain translations for archaisms in speech babbles. And we shortened the screen time of Hagoromo that usually takes more than 60 minutes to 18 minutes.
In this video, you can also watch uncommon scenes such as performers’ preparation, the moment of assuming a mask and views from each performer.
This is not a prim introduction. We hope that many viewers are interested in noh

The dance collaboration of Koichiro Mori and David Elsewhere was realized on the Kuraki Noh Stage.
 The two dancers have prestigious careers. Koichiro Mori is well known all over the world as a highly artistic performer. He earned “the Reumert Award”, “the Copenhagen Award” and “the Danish Hiphop Award”, at the Danmark’s top theatre prize, and has gotten a tribute from the queen, Margrethe Ⅱ.
 David Elsewhere is also an artistic dancer who has been the last dance coach for Michael Jackson for two years. He has worked with many celebrities such as Jonny Depp in the movie Alice in Wonderland and Takuya Kimura in his commercial filming.
 Elsewhere came see Mori in Japan and they visited the Kuraki Noh Stage. We had a good fortune to witness the shooting their dance collaboration as they became fond of the stage.
