    Gagaku Performance

    Friday, April 27, 2018 from 1PM
    Boston Higashi School
    800 North Main Street, Randolph, MA 02368

    Performers from Japan are coming to the Boston Higashi School to share a Gagaku performance of  “Urayasu No Mai.” This dance piece was composed in 1940 to commemorate Japan’s 2600th anniversary of its founding. It is a very new composition in the history of gagaku, and is based on a poem written by Emperor Showa (1901-1989).


                The poem reads:

                Ame tsuchi No Kami Nizo Inoru Asanagi No

                Umi No Gotoku Ni Nami Tatanu Yo Wo.

                 (I pray to God, creator of the universe for a peaceful world –

                a world like the calm morning sea.)

    The poem was set to music by Tadatomo Ohno, then court conductor of the Imperial Household Agency’s Music Department, who also worked on the choreography.

    From ancient times, Japan has been referred to as Urayasu no Kuni, which means “the land of natural beauty, where serenity reigns.” Here, urayasu means “peaceful mind,” and mai means “dance.”

    There are two types of mai in this dance: Ōgi no mai, which uses fans, and Suzu no mai, which uses bells as props. These are solemn, graceful dances with a gentle rhythm.

    There will be a reception following the performance.

    Inspired by the true childhood experience of TV/film actor and social media icon George Takei (Mr. Sulu on “Star Trek), ALLEGIANCE tells the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they and 120,000 other Japanese-Americans are forced to leave their homes following the events at Pearl Harbor. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but sister Kei fiercely protests the government’s treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, ALLEGIANCE follows the Kimuras as they fight between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves. SpeakEasy Stage is proud to breathe new life into ALLEGIANCE by presenting the East Coast regional premiere of an intimate version of this important musical.

    RUN TIME: Approx. 2 hours and 10 minutes with one intermission.

    The film that made Yujiro Ishihara a star and the Nikkatsu studio solvent, The Stormy Man stars Ishihara as Shoichi Kokubu, a young drummer who employs both his hands and his fists in the Ginza jazz world. His younger brother Eiji supports his ambitions and helps find him a manager in Fukushima Miyako, who is as sassy and smart as she is gorgeous. Their mother, however, is stubbornly opposed to Shoichi’s choice of careers—a constant source of pain for him and of annoyance for the audience.

    Miyako takes Shoichi into her spacious Western-style house, where he can practice without disturbance. She also begins to take a more than professional interest in him, while maintaining her all-business facade. He feels the same tug—but his first priority is to beat Charley Sakurada, the best drummer in the Ginza and an arrogant wit with gang connections. 

    Released in the peak New Year’s season, The Stormy Man became the third biggest box-office hit of 1957. It also solidified Inoue’s reputation as a maker of hit musicals. For its young audience, who clapped and cheered as Ishihara sang “Ore wa dorama, yakuza na dorama” (“I’m a drummer, a no-good drummer”), the film was an event, a generational marker, and a much-revived classic. Today it still packs musical excitement—and presents Japan’s premier movie star at his most charismatic. Inoue remade the film for Shaw Brothers in Hong Kong as King Drummer (1967). – Adapted from Mark Schilling in Asia Sings! A Survey of Asian Musical Films.

    Directed by Umetsugu Inoue. With Yujiro Ishihara, Kyoji Aoyama, Mie Kitahara
    Japan 1957, DCP, color, 101 min. Japanese with English subtitles

    Umetsugu Inoue’s first film with Yujiro Ishihara, The Winner tells the story of a punk kid who tries boxing as a lark, gets the tar punched out of him and starts training for real. His manager is a former contender who sees the boy as way to realize a championship dream that he himself could never fulfill.

    Inspired by the 1948 classic The Red Shoes, Inoue added a subplot about an up-and-coming ballerina who falls in love with the boxer. Her graceful solo dance, presented in a thirteen-minute cut, with a young Akira Kobayashi as a transfixed spectator is one of the film’s highlights.

    Another high point is the climatic fight scene that Inoue filmed with more than two hundred cuts over four days. To save time and money, he shot the entire scene from one side, changing the colors of the two corners to create the illusion that the action was unfolding in 360 degrees. Ishihara’s opponent was a former champion boxer, but Ishihara, blessed with athletic ability and quick hands, gave as good as he got.

    The Winner lived up to its name at the box office and proved, to Inoue’s satisfaction at least, that Ishihara could carry a film. (The studio bosses would need a bit more convincing.) It also established the template—action with musical interludes—for dozens of Nikkatsu films to come. – Adapted from Mark Schilling in Asia Sings! A Survey of Asian Musical Films.

    The first feature-length theatrical film shot in Konicolor, The Green Music Box is based on the eponymous novel by Makoto Hojo. A musical action film for children, the movie typifies Umetsugu Inoue’s creative use of color. It marks the debut of fourteen-year-old Ruriko Asaoka, whose character becomes entangled with a spy trying to steal her father’s secrets. The cast also includes the talented comedian Frankie Sakai. Asaoka would sustain a career in Nikkatsu action and melodrama pictures through the following decades, while Sakai brought his inimitable sly humor to a number of Yuzo Kawashima’s vibrant dark comedies. The restored 35mm Konicolor print is from the Collection of the National Film Archive of Japan, Tokyo. – Adapted from Il Cinema Ritrovato.

    In Inoue’s follow-up to The Winner, Yujiro Ishihara plays a seaman who joins the crew of a rusty cargo ship to avenge himself on his father’s enemy. Also on board is another new hand with a secret, played by a buff, shirtless Rentaro Mikuni. Ishihara’s bad attitude immediately gets him into trouble with the crew, which he escapes with his fists. He finds an unlikely ally in Mikuni, who has reason to dislike and distrust him. Ishihara also attracts the attention of the two women on board, a sultry stowaway and the captain’s high-spirited daughter—played by Ruriko Asaoka—who has already been claimed by the short-fused first mate.

    The story, which Inoue first scripted when he was still an assistant director, does not play out in obvious ways, just as Ishihara’s character is hard to classify. He is neither a heartless toughie nor a pure-minded exemplar, but something new to Japanese films: a dirty hero with his own sense of justice and a way with song. 

    Inoue shot nearly the entire film aboard a real WWII cargo ship in Tokyo Bay, halting only when a typhoon threatened to send his ship, cast and crew to the bottom. The real pitching, rolling, and spray of seawater he captured add to the air of danger, excitement and, in the scenes of a cocky Ishihara singing to a wary-but-fascinated Asaoka, erotic tension. – Adapted from Mark Schilling in Asia Sings! A Survey of Asian Musical Films.

    Hong Kong’s mighty Shaw Brothers studio lent a new sheen to the territory’s musicals in the mid-1960s when it brought in director Umetsugu Inoue from Japan. A standout among Inoue’s seventeen productions for Shaw is Hong Kong Nocturne, a lavish song, dance and drama confection that reworked his earlier Japanese film Tonight We’ll Dance against new backdrops.

    Cheng Pei-pei, Lily Ho and Chin Ping star as the Chia sisters, the backup troupe for their musician father on Hong Kong’s nightclub circuit. When they become fed up with Dad siphoning away their salaries, the girls leave home to pursue ballet, screen stardom or marriage. The trio eventually overcome personal obstacles, band together, and aim to hit the big time in the televised Hong Kong Music Lovers a-go-go stage show.

    Melodrama piles on thick and fast when a show-must-go-on plot takes root, but the Chia sisters and their friends remain happy to step out with spontaneous song. Wild flights of fantasy appear in one sister’s dreams, and the girls’ partnership with a budding composer brings a local theme to their ultimate production, a widescreen musical extravaganza on expansive, Broadway-style sets. Though the lead actresses did not lend their voices to the movie’s soundtrack—a job left to pros like singer Tsin Ting—the three display ample dance floor talents and remain a joy to follow as they struggle to fulfill their dreams of the spotlight. – Adapted from Tim Youngs in Asia Sings! A Survey of Asian Musical Films.

Known as Wind in the Pines Hut, it is authentic except that two sides are left open for viewing the ceremony. It is one of
    only a few such tea huts open to the public in New England. Folding canvas chairs are provided or visitors are invited to bring their own.

    Admission to the public tea ceremony is free but seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Guests are advised to dress with weather conditions in mind since this outside event is closely connected with nature. Arrangements have been made to hold the event inside the museum in case of inclement weather.
