Tono Monogatari: Mysterious Things
遠野物語・奇ッ怪 其ノ参

In autumn of this year,  I will be appearing in the stage play "Tono Monogatari: Mysterious Things"
今年秋に上演される舞台『遠野物語・奇ッ怪 其ノ参』に出演することが決まりました。

As I love going to see any play directed by Maekawa, that I would actually perform in a work he directs... it's a dream come true. And whenever I see one of his productions, I am transported to that world. It's like the feeling of an icy drink slowly passing from the mouth, through to the esophagus and into the stomach. In so doing, it controls the head. It's a mysterious feeling.
演出の前川さんの作品は何作も観に行くほど大好きで、まさか自分が前川さんの演出の作品に出演できるとは・・・夢のようです。
そして、作品を観る度に自分や世の中というものを俯瞰させられる。
じんわりと、ものすごく冷たい飲み物が口から食道、そして胃へゆっくりと流れていく感覚。
そうやって頭の中を支配していく。
不思議な感覚だ。

I felt this way when I first read Tono Monogatari, Yanagita Kunio's chronicle of the mysterious folklore of Tono. Of course, I'd never been to Tono, but I still felt these dreamlike stories connect with us nowadays. In the cycles of life and death, could reincarnation, the gods, the existence of monstrous ghosts be true, I wondered. Though we are unaware, there's a revived feeling of truths engraved on Japanese spirits. Well, it might be said that I like such stories.
遠野物語は柳田國男が不思議な遠野の伝説を聞き記したものなのだが、これを初めて読んだ時も不思議な感覚だった。
もちろん遠野にも行ったことがないし、空想の話のようなのだが、現代の僕らに通じるようなものを感じた。
生と死は繰り返し、生まれ変わりや神や妖怪の存在も本当なのではないか・・・そんなことを考えてしまう。
僕らが気付いていない、日本人の魂に刻まれた真実がよみがえってきそうな感覚だ。
まぁ、僕がそういう類の話が好きだということもあるのだろう。

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous, but my anticipation is greater.
不安もないと言ったら嘘になるが、楽しみなことの方が多い。

My costars include Nakamura Tooru, a simply splendid actor. As I expect to learn a lot as an actor, I'm looking forward forward to this production above all.
共演者には仲村トオルさんをはじめ、素晴らしい演者の方ばかりだ。
役者として勉強することもたくさんあるだろうし、何よりこの作品を楽しみたい。

This autumn, everyone, please come to the world of Tono.
今年の秋、皆さんを遠野の世界へ誘います。
