Aigatari (間語リ)

One type of aikyōgen performed by the kyōgenkata in Noh. After the entrance of the maeshite in Noh, the ai playing the part of a villager sits in the center of the main stage and tells stories of the shite to the waki. Because it involves remaining in the middle of the main stage to speak, it is known as aigatari, or “remaining speaking.” It is also known as igatari, and the ai performing aigatari is known as the katariai.
