Haneōgi (ハネ扇)

A form in Noh and kyōgen. One main rib (the fattest rib of each side of the fan) of the opened fan is held with the left hand by the fan leaf, then after touching the fan to the right shoulder then returned in a broad motion toward the left. This motion is repeated twice, and often accompanied with several steps forward. The Haneōgi is used to express the shaking movement of objects, and appears at the end (Kiri) of Hagoromo to depict a fluttering sea breeze.
