Bandō Kotoji Dancing Hiku-mono tsukushi (ひくもの尽くし)

Hiku-mono tsukushi is a piece that enumerates the various actions that are called in Japanese "hiku." The verb "hiku" includes the meanings "to draw a bow", "clouds spread out", "to pluck a stringed instrument", "to pull in a net", and others. This video is from the dance techniques workshop led by Mr. Bandō, and includes his introduction to the piece.
