On Saturday, the 31st, I attended the Japanese Culture Seminar Autumn Course at Osaka Shoin Women’s University. The lecture was given by Mr. Kei Hasegawa and the demonstration was given by Mr. Asahido Nankai (storyteller).
This is the second time I have attended this class after the last one (Narrative Play). As was the case with the last time, I was very satisfied and was able to enjoy the excellence of the storytelling.
I’ve been called a “lecturer,” a “storyteller,” a “liar like you’ve seen before.
It is ridiculed as “you write lies like you’ve seen them before”, but no matter what people say, good things are good. I don’t know if it’s because humans have gotten older or not.
I can’t help but think that somehow the old things seem better these days.
Dr. Kei Hasegawa’s lecture. This is the second time in a row that he has done this, and his speech is light-hearted with a light-hearted laugh.
And yet, the story has a neat plot and a story with a twist. It was almost as if the way he spoke was one of his tricks. Also, Asahido Nankai-sensei’s demonstration
In “The Last Days of Shigenari Kimura”, the story goes on like water on a board in the Shichigo style while beating the shakuhachi with a fan. I can understand the scene better than if I had seen it on film.
He didn’t shout, but rather he spoke quietly enough to make me drowsy, but I was naturally drawn in.
It is said that in the old days, one story was divided into several times and performed for several days in a row with the method of “Today is up to here”.
It seems that the townspeople, after finishing their work, took a bath and finished their dinner, and then went to listen to a lecture and a continuation of yesterday’s story. I wish I could have lived in those times.
