Dance title Renjishi Author Kawatake Mokuami (lyrics) Hanayagi Jusuke I (choreography) Kineya Shôjirô III / Kineya Katsusaburô II (music) History The dance "Renjishi" was staged for the first time in 1861, starring the dance master Hanayagi Jusuke I and his son Hanayagi Yoshijirô. The music was written by Kineya Katsusaburô II and his piece was called "Katsusaburô Renjishi". The first performance of this dance with Kabuki actors occured in July 1872 at the Murayamaza, starring Bandô Hikosaburô V and Sawamura Tosshô II in the roles of the shishi parent and cub. The music piece for this performance was not "Katsusaburô Renjishi", but a new piece written by Kineya Shôjirô III and called "Shôjirô Renjishi".

Renjishi
Plot Summary
The theme of "Renjishi" stays close to that of the Nô play "Shakkyô", and it is classified as a matsubame dance. That is, a dance that's performed before the symbolic backdrop of a large pine tree flanked by bamboo which is copied from the Nô stage. This scenery has no connection with the dance's content. The first section features a pair of Kyôgen actors who come to dance the story of the shishi parent and cub. The actors each carry a wooden mask of a shishi head, one with white hair representing the parent shishi and the other with red hair to represent its child. A shishi is a mythological lion-like animal said to be the king of beasts and always associated with the Buddhist deity Monju. For this reason, any portrayal of the shishi should not only bring out its wild, beastial nature, but also a sense of dignity and authority that goes with this divine status. The shishi is in many ways a spiritual creature.
