Beyond language barriers to bring excitement abroad, the Bunya dolls act as if they were alive
Pick out works that lead to modernity from among numerous pessimisms and old jou ruri (ballad dramas), the Saruhachi-za Puppet Troupe tackles the revival of the Bunya doll introduced in Sado Island. The fast tempo movement by one's personality is outstanding among the world of puppet ballad dramas. Performing the masterpiece of Monzaemon Chikamatsu's "Genjieboshiori" is based on the legend of Yoshitsune Minamoto, an extremely rare performance to be performed at present by Gidayuubushi. Giving life to the doll, acting full of emotion together with the sound of the Shamisen shakes the rock quietly.
