Description

Onoe Baikô VI (1870-1934), a native of Nagoya city, studied dance as a young man. At the age of 12 he was adopted by the kabuki actor Onoe Kikugorô V. He first assumed the stage name Baikô VI in 1903, and kept it until his death. He is considered one of the outstanding onnagata actors of his day, and frequently played opposite Ichimura Uzaemon XV. He was especially renowned for his portrayal of possessed women or ghosts, and that is how Mamamitsu has portrayed him here. The kabuki dance drama “Momijigari (Gathering Autumn Leaves),” based on a Noh play of the same name, features a princess who is transformed into a demon and performs a battle dance.
