In my previous studies, I have paid attention to modern Confucianism's educational thoughts and the scholars' state of being as educationalists, and I realized that the modern era's educational method remains even now in the world of traditional entertainment.
In this study, among Japanese traditional entertainment skills, the world of Japanese Buyo dance is examined. I have related to Buyo dance since infancy, I thought I can carry out internal examination different from objective viewpoint from the outside.
The origin of existing Japanese Buyo dance is Kabuki Buyo of modern era. Since posture dances are always included in Kabuki program, specialized dance director came to be required, so Kabuki performer besides being dance director appeared. They made sects and grandmaster system, and instructed Japanese Buyo dance as a profession. One of them is NISHIKAWA Senzo, and one of the pupuls is the 1st NISHIKAWA Koisaburo.
The 2nd NISHIKAWA Koisaburo was instructed by a great performer th
e 6th Onoe Kikugoro with whole attention and expressed the telent of dancing not limited to Buyo dance. On the instruction for pupils, additionally, he showed excellence succeeded from the master. It can be said that there was exquisiteness of instruction in the good opportunity.
His creative Buyo dance is based on the good points of classics, introduced Noh and Kyogenn, added modernity with dramatic structure to be a new category "Buyo Drama." Though it is Buyo dance, it is not concentrated only to posture as a style, but also gave priority to literature (story) to be realistic and mental Buyo drama.
In other words, Koisaburo most intended "popularization" of Japanese Buyo dance. Though he was said to be a "master, " the social evaluation at that time for Koisaburo's skill and achievement was not truly evaluated. Japan need to cultivate the cultural ground and nationality to be able to fairly evaluate a true art. Traditonal entertainment education will show its ability to support the lifetime-education society after this, and cultivate "sensitivity" that we have lost. Less
