【KODOGU】

 
  • Various props such as Bugu (arms and armor) and belongings used in “Amagasaki Kankyo no ba” from “Ehon Taikoki” performed in November, 2005 at the National Theatre. (Y_E0100246900384)
The props in Kabuki can be roughly divided into two types: ones that the actors hold in their hands and others that are installed on stage ahead of time.
Props include “Bugu (arms)” such as swords and armors, “Mochimono (belongings)” such as sandals and clogs, as well as the furniture or a hanging scroll decorated on stage. Also, stuffed animals of a horse or dog, and vehicles such as a palanquin are all categorized as props.
When an actor uses a branch that he broke from a big tree created as a stage set, the tree itself is a stage set, but its branch is considered a prop as the actor holds it in his hands.
