The Four Seasons Of The Five Elements Is a body of one of one of a kind vision and concept drawn from the past and future Interesting fact: thought I would share this with you as a valid question arose from this image which with it, may bring some controversial topics. Female Kabuki was at it’s most fame in the 1600’s As you know your history is quite correct here we have referenced Kumadori “The red kumadori expresses justice, courage and strength so it is the color of makeup for the hero. In fact the color red is also seen in torii gates of shrines.” As an artist I embrace change in fact in 1953 the Ichikawa Shōjo Kabuki Gekidan, an all-female troupe, debuted in 1953 to significant acclaim but failed to start a new trend. But as you know there are still female Kabuki artists and may this continue ,unfortunately All-women troupes, or at least troupes having a female leader, are becoming more common in Japan. However, they are still looked down upon. They will never be able to reach the same status as that of an all-male cast if the tradition of the onnagata is to strictly continue. The doors of big theatre in Japan, especially on the National stage, are barred and locked to women. In conclusion, although women are not held in the same status as they were held when kabuki was first born, they still play an important part. From being the cause of a long tradition of the onnagata to slowly trying to ease their way back onto the stage, feminine presence never really left. The story of kabuki must continue on, and women may just have to be the ones to pick the torches back up and carry it. They are still evolving.
