NHK Kabuki Kool 2020 The World of Kabuki Choreography

Choreographers create the movement and staging of a kabuki performance, contributing hugely to its appeal. Our guest, expert choreographer Fujima Kanjuro, talks about the intricacies of the job. Kanjuro’s grandfather, the famous choreographer Fujima Kanso II created modern versions of classical dances that became standard. “Fuji Musume (The Wisteria Maiden)” shows the spirit of the wisteria blossoms as a young girl in love.
