Dream and Soul Performance—Dekonaru-Za
We want to practice traditional performing arts. We want to acquire the necessary techniques.
We want to protect our local culture. We want to pass it down to future generations.
With great passion, we are continuing our performing art activities.
We want to show you the results of our practice.
We want to show you the techniques we have learned.
We want to show you who we are and what we do.
We want to perform on the stage, and we want to be applauded.
The performance of our group “Dekonaru-Za” is filled with our dreams.
We will demonstrate a form of traditional performing art from Hida, Japan, which you have probably never seen before.
There is no dialogue—only the sound of drums and music from our souls.
This is based on a myth. A long time ago, there was a kijin (fierce god) named “Ryōmen Sukuna” in Hida Province. It had two heads on one body, four arms and was five meters tall. It looked scary, but it helped the weak and was always on the side of farmers. The “Ryōmen Sukuna” god was a heroic existence who helped a lot with land development. With this god as the main theme of our performance, we portray the story with Japanese musical instruments and dance.
