Nishikawa-ryu Company - 69th Nagoya Odori Classical Japanese Dance Performance

Started in 1945 aiming to lightening up the hard lives of the post-war Nagoya people, the Nagoya Odori stage show brings up together all those centuries-old dance techniques and artistic styles from all over Japan, in a majestic and unmissable dance festival eagerly awaited by everybody, presented by none less than the legendary Nishikawa-ryu Company!

Step into the hall and then suddenly, it's Edo Period!

The Nishikawa-Ryu Company, itself with over 170 years of history, presents the annual event that have traditionally entertained Nagoya for the past 70 years: Nagoya Odori!

Up at the stage, the “Nippon Buyo-ka” Japanese Dance Specialists are lined up. Senior veterans full of experience and young newcomers entrusted with the artistic future of the company. Then the “Kuroto”, the geisha specialists of Nishikawa-Ryu nowadays more adequately called “Geiko”. The music is the same one of old, using those long flutes and traditional drums.

At the stage decorated with Edo Period themes, they’ll appear dressed in kimonos, or even jeans trousers. With those colors and movements, enjoy a blissful dive into the artistic history of Japan!

Three different ways of enjoying the stages!

The Session I is entitled “Enjoying the Orthodox “Nippon Buyo” Japanese Dance of Old” (“Mukashi Nagara no Nippon Buyo wo Ajiwau”). Session II will be “Feel the Glorious Bustle” (“Hanayaka na Nigiwai wo Kanjiru”), and Session III, “For the Fresh Beginners, Get Intimate with Japan” (“Cho-Shoshinsha Muke, Wa ni Hitashimu”). From the headers, we’re able to gather that all sorts of Japanese dance techniques will be generously displayed! To see the more traditional and orthodox styles, stick to the afternoon sessions, and for the flashy and modernized themes, go in the night sessions!
