  • Stage of Ningyo-Joruri Bunraku in “Meido no Hikyaku”. Yoshida Tamao as Chubei and Yoshida Minosuke 3rd as Umegawa. February, 1993 at the National Theatre. (Y_D0100102015032)
This is a theatrical production consisted of a narration of Gidayu-Bushi, music by the Shamisen, and acting of puppets combined together.
Since the Genroku period (1688~1704), it was developed by such great writers as Chikamatsu Monzaemon and Takeda Izumo, among other writers. From around the mid-Edo period, a puppet came to be manipulated by three persons, which enabled more detailed and subtle movements.
It is now called “Bunraku” and performed mainly at the National Bunraku Theatre in Osaka and the National Theatre in Tokyo.
