Mōshiawase (申し合わせ)

Point in the performance at which the rhythm is kept with only the ōgi (hari-ōgi), no ōtsuzumi or other instruments, and masks and costumes often not worn. There is typically only one Mōshiawase except in the case of especially large or rare performances. In shortened performances the Shite and Waki or Waki and Ai may peform the Mōshiawase in the dressing room on the day of the performance for their shared parts.
