Men's Kimono for Stage Costume
Item: Men's Kimono
History: quite old
Condition: very good
The Global Culture Nasu group came to Austria to performance a part of the HEIKE MONOGATARI. They were all women, and with impressive gestures and music, I was amazed. With grace and elegance, I could understand everything that it was happening.
I really like the japanese traditional dance and theater, specially one-character plays and it always surprises me how a character develops through dance and movements, connected permanently with music.
A staging that I will keep in my mind forever is the one of the Fuji Musume by Bandō Tamasaburō. That presence, those colours..
Clothes in dance and theater are something very special. I like a lot the kimonos that are divided, with different colours on each side. They are intriguing but beautiful. Here I show you one from Ichiroya, perfect example of this unique style.
