Komai (小舞)

One of the dances of the Kyōgenkata, many of the Komai, or “small dances,” are relatively short. The types of verses vary from those found in popular historical plays such as Nanatsugo and Uji No Sarashi to typical Noh verses such as those found in Ukai and Kagekiyo. In addition to being performed in the drinking parties of kyōgen, Komai are also performed in the Shimai of Noh. The Komai often follow jiutai, and are performed in montsuki-hakama or Kamishimo costumes.
