Kabuki at Colorado College コロラドカレッジの歌舞伎

The Medicine Peddler, directed by Laurence KominzI have been in a city called Colorado Springs since the end of January. I am here to assist with a production of the kabuki play The Medicine Peddler (Uirô uri) at Colorado College. My role is music director. I am also playing shamisen and singing ozatsuma in the show.

Colorado College students have been a great pleasure to work with. They are remarkably talented and are fast learners. I am working especially closely with four students who–in addition to playing important acting roles in the show–will provide the live music for the production. They will play key instruments such as bell, flute, drums, wooden clappers, etc. They have been doing a terrific job in rehearsals and will be sure to wow audiences at our upcoming shows on February 8, 9, and 1o.

In addition to kabuki, there will be other presentations on the program such as buyô dances, a tribute to Ichikawa Danjûrô XII (1946-2013) by Dr. Laurence Kominz, and rakugo by yours truly. If you can make it to Colorado Springs, please come to the show! The students will surely be enjoyable to watch!
