Talk: The Kagura

Talk: The Kagura


The Kagura by Prof.Terence Lancashire, Osaka Ohtani University. Kagura, a ritual entertainment performed primarily in Shinto shrines, is one of the five main categories of Japanese folk performing arts as defined by the Agency for Cultural Affairs. Kagura has its origins in the mythical dance of the goddess Ame no Uzume no Mikoto.

Professor Lancashire discusses the origins of this ancient ritual entertainment form, and how it has developed. He also looks at surviving traditions of Kagura. This talk supports the Iwami Kagura show which will be performed in the Main Hall at 1pm.
