Nagauta ``Shizu no Odamaki''


This Japanese dance recounts the ancient tales of Shizuka Gozen - the sad parting with her lover Yoshitsune Minamoto at Mt. Yoshino, her journey to Kamakura, and the Shira-byoushi dance at the shrine of Tsurugaoka-hachimanguu performed at the desires of Yoritomo. Despite her captivity, Shizuka Gozen continues to long for her lover Yoshitsune and prays for the safety of her beloved, incurring the displeasure of Yoritomo in this dance.
