月見座頭  茸  

世田谷パブリックシアター  狂言劇場

月見座頭(野村万作)  洛中の男(野村萬斎)

お昼にビールを飲んで、代官山から渋谷の坂を上って下り、三茶まで駆けつけた。
パブリックシアターの場内にしつらえた四角く張り出した舞台の静謐なたたずまい。左右奥三つに伸びる細い道。これだけで、今日の舞台は正解と決まる。
八島の合戦の語りと舞い、男たちの声が重なる地謡。午後の眠気をそっと誘いながらも心地よい緊張感。

照明が落ちて黒子が舞台の四方にススキを置く。再び明るくなれば、そこに夏を過ぎた静かな秋の野外。
そして、今日の真打ち万作が左の道の奥にあらわれる。かがめた腰の位置がきまり、そのまま少しのゆれさえ見せない。座頭が細い杖を前に左右について歩く。止まる。顔をわずかに上げ耳を地面に傾け、虫の音を探す。がちゃがちゃとなるクツワムシの騒がしい音に笑う。スズムシの音、きりぎりす。
舞台には照明でつくった満月はない。座頭を照らすスポットもなく、秋を暗示するどんな色の照明も当たらない。あくまでも白い四角い舞台とススキ、そこに座頭を演じる万作がひとり。しかし、観客のすべてが、煌々と真昼のように秋の野を照らす満月の光を見、草むらのそこここにさまざまに高低が違い音色が違う虫の音を聞いたに、違いない。

至芸とはこのようなことを言う。その思いを自分が味わっただけで、今日の舞台は満足となる。それにしても、万作の絶妙な体の動き、はじめは老人のしわがれ声と聞こえていた声がしだいに仙人の艶やかな声になるさま。竜也を半年くらい万作さんがしこんでくれたらと、つい想像する。天才は天才とふれるべきだから。

舞台に都洛中の男が現れる。男に酒をつがれる座頭。杯に見立てた扇が、注がれる酒を受けて空中を沈むさまの絶妙なこと。残った酒をさっと地面に捨てて、一瞬のうちに杯は扇になって、舞がはじまる。しかし、これが、萬斎には出来ていない。萬斎が下手というのではないのだけれど、舞台の神はいつも残酷だ。同じ様をさせれば観る者には違いがあからさまになるもの。

それにしても、ビールがきいてきて、ここから先に睡魔に襲われた自分・・・。ばかやろー。いえ、睡魔をそれまで寄せ付けさせなかった万作の芸が素晴らしかったのだと思うことにします。

作品としては、あとの茸が面白かった。落語や狂言の笑いは健康にこの上なく良い。外国の人や子供たちに見せたら、さぞかし喜ぶだろう。

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.
