2015年からショーネッドが新たに始めた「Odori-Dawns-Dance」にプロジェクトメンバーとして参加。プロジェクトの概要は上記リンクから、ショーネッドの言葉で読んでいただければと思う。

ここには私の個人的な話を書く。私は2008年からショーネッドと創作を共にしていたので(「Aomori Project」)、彼女の思考や感覚がわかるような気持ちになっていた。しかしそれは錯覚で、私も彼女も一人の人間であり、感じ方も反応も様々であるという当たり前の事にこのプロジェクトを通して気付いた。「Aomori Project」で私は彼女の作品の一部になる事に全身全霊をかけてきたけれど、「Odori-Dawns-Dance」では木村玲奈という人間が何をどうするのかが問われたし、私自身も自分自身を知り直すきっかけになったと思う。ショーネッドの興味や関心が変化していくこと、彼女自身の事を近くで眺め、感じ、私なりの方法・関わり方を模索しながら「Odori-Dawns-Dance」での時間を過ごした。ショーネッドが出逢った行山流山口派 柿内沢鹿踊(かきないざわししおどり)を彼女が当時住んでいた岩手県気仙郡住田町の家に3年間で約83日滞在し習うことができた事は、本当に貴重で光栄な時間だった。私が生まれ育った青森市も住田町と同じ東北地方に分類されているけれど、方言も風土も文化も違う事を肌で感じた。東北は広い。鹿踊を真剣に習えば習うほど、住田町に暮らしていない女性の私が (本来鹿踊は男性(長男)が踊る) 鹿踊を踊る・習う事を悩んだ。ある先輩の踊り手さんに「もったいねーなー。なんでお前は女なんだ。でも、これからも鹿踊 踊ってな。よろしく頼むよ。」と言われたことがずっと今も心の中にある。私が踊っていいのだろうか、という思いと同時に、ダンサー・振付家として生きている身として鹿踊を学べること、踊っている時間を体感できることは非常に重要なことだった。悩んでいた時期は長かったけれど、土地の者でない女の私が真剣に鹿踊と向き合うこと、それはダンサー・振付家として鹿踊というひとつのフォームを学び理解することなのではないかと考えるようになっていった。私にできる形で、誠実に土地と人と踊りと向き合いたかった。
最後に柿内沢鹿踊の皆様と踊らせていただいたのが2018年2月。いつか再び、ショーネッド、共にプロジェクトに参加していた清水穂奈美さん、若林里枝さんと共に、柿内沢鹿踊を学べる日を心待ちにしています。

「踊る」とはどういうことなのか、最近よく考える。心の中ですぐに唱えることができる口唱歌。タンタンタグチグ タンターンコ。
鹿踊はいつも私の中に在る。

Participated as a project member in “Odori-Dawns-Dance” which was newly started by Sioned Huws in 2015. I would like you to read the outline of the project in the words of Sioned from the link above.

I write my personal story here. I’ve been working with Sioned Huws since 2008 (“Aomori Project”), so I thought I can understand her thoughts and feelings. However, it was an illusion, and I realized through this project that I and she are human beings, and that they have different feelings and reactions. In the “Aomori Project” I’ve been devoted to becoming part of her work as a dancer, but in “Odori-Dawns-Dance” I was asked what a human being named Reina Kimura would do, and myself. I think it was a good opportunity for me to get to know myself. I spent a lot of time at “Odori-Dawns-Dance”, looking and feeling about Sioned’s interests and herself up close, exploring my own ways and ways to get involved. I was able to stay for about 83 days in 3 years, house in Sumita Town, Kesen-gun, Iwate Prefecture, where Sioned lived, and learn the Gyozan-ryu Yamaguchi-ha Kakinaizawa Shi-Shi Odori. It was a very precious and honorable time. Aomori City, where I was born and raised, is classified in the same Tohoku region as Sumita Town, but I felt that the dialect, culture and climate were different. Tohoku is large. The more I learned Shi-Shi Odori (deer dance) seriously, I was worried about that ‘Am I allowed to dance Shi-Shi Odori ?’  I’m a woman who am not living in Sumita town. Originally deer dance is dancded by a local man (oldest son). I have in my heart that a senior dancer told me, “Why are you not a man…. But, please keep dancing deer dance. ” still now. At the same time as I was wondering if I could dance Shi-Shi Odori, it was very important to learn deer dance as a living dancer and choreographer and to experience the time when I was dancing. Although I was worried for a long time, I began to think that I learn and try to understand of one form of Shi-Shi Odori as a dancer and choreographer. This how was I seriously faced deer dance, as a woman who wasn’t part of the land. I wanted to study the land, people, and Shi-Shi odori  seriously and carefully a way I could.
Lastly, I danced with everyone from Kakinaizawa Shi-Shi Odori in February 2018. Someday I am looking forward to the day when I can study Kakinaizawa Shi-Shi Odori again with Sioned, Honami Shimizu, and Rie Wakabayashi who participated in this project together.

Recently I have been thinking a lot about what it means to “dance”. Kuchi-Shoga (dram beat)  that I can sing always in my heart, ‘Tan Tan Tag Chigu Tan Tanko’.
Shi-Shi Odori is in me.
