Hazusu (ハズス)

A movement form in Noh and Kyōgen acting: to turn from the current direction or object to a different one. Because Noh attempts to express complex inner life in simple movements, multiple acting terms are used for seemingly identical movements. Depending on the school, the movement is often expressed in various ways: “hazusu” as well as “muku”, “ukeru”, “mio-kaeru”, “mio-naosu” and so on. The terms described in the esoteric books are rich in suggestions, and the performers need to read and understand them.
