For more than half a century, the National Theatre, where various performing arts have been performed as a hall of fame for traditional performing arts.
This meeting of Fusako Shida and Maki will deliver a farewell and gratitude to the National Theater, which is scheduled to be completely renovated from this autumn.
The performance kicked off in grand style with Maki Shida, who won the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Award for Art Encouragement this year, performing the classic dance masterpiece "Inohabushi," and living national treasure Fusako Shida, performing the classical dance "Sakuta." Next, Hidetaro Honjo (special appearance) will perform Uta Shamisen, and Maki Shida's dance creation "Black Hair" will deliver the overlap of the beauty of Ryukyu and Yamato.
For the second part, we invited a dancer who is active in the front line of Ryukyu dance from Okinawa to present Fusako Shida's works such as "Firefly" and "Momouri Aneko". We will deliver works that make you feel the scent of Okinawa.
And finally, the creative dance “Yugafu”, which depicts the daily lives of the people of Ryukyu and Okinawa who work hard at rice farming in the idyllic countryside, will be performed from Tokyo in June to world peace. I will perform with my prayers.
From classical dance that conveys the beauty of the dynasty to creative dance, the world of Fusako Shida and Maki Shida, who pursue the artistry and beauty of Ryukyu dance while respecting the old style, along with the current Ryukyu dance that has been handed down to the present day. Please fully enjoy it at the theater.
