This is a video showing a performance by Kazurahata Za, the rural kabuki company, whose performances were revived after 38 years in 2003. Kazurahata in Yabu City is located in the northern region of Hyogo Prefecture. It hosts the National Important Tangible Folk Cultural Property, "the Stage of Kazurahata" (known as the Shibaido). In Kazurahata, where the birthrate is declining and the population is aging, we are promoting village revitalization through the use of this cultural property. This time, we have recorded the process of reviving rural kabuki. We hope you will enjoy it.
