What is “Onnagata”?
“Onnagata” is male actor who plays female roles in a classical Japanese
dance-drama Kabuki or performances for the masses.
The Edo Shogunate started to prohibit foreign travel and entered an era of isolation around 400 years ago.
An isolation policy that has shut the country off from the rest of the world over 250 years created Japan’s own culture
expressed in such as “Sabi,” austere refinement, “Wabi,” quiet simplicity as well as luxuriousness.
The female impersonator “Onnagata” has developed and became popular in such cultural background.
And then performances of an outstanding “Onnagata” in the stage attracts the audience nowadays.
The outstanding actor is seventeen-year-old Taichi Saotome who has trained classical Japanese dance,
swordplay and western dance under the instructions of mother and father since the ages of 4-year-old.
