数々の国際コンクールで優勝を果たしてきたピアニスト牧村英里子の企画・原作による、コンサートパフォーマンス「JAPANESE CHAMBER CABARET」。ゲストとして、ダンサー巖良明を迎えます。
【日本・デンマーク外交関係樹立150周年】

今年2017年は、日本・デンマークの外交関係樹立150周年にあたります。「Dome of Visions」は、数々の国際コンクールで優勝を征してきた日本人ピアニスト牧村英里子を、今年欧州文化首都に選出されたデンマークのオーフスでの2夜連続コンサートパフォーマンスに招聘します。クラシックコンサートの形式をベースとして、日本の文化、歴史、そして今現在の社会現象に、ピアニストでパフォーマーでもある牧村英里子はドラマティックかつ独自の実験的パフォーマンスに満ちたアプローチで切り込んでいきます。

 

【コンサート背景】

私の友人の日本女性がある時言いました。「家庭を切り盛りするのは工業生産ビジネスのようなものだわ。時間とデッドラインに追われて逃げ場がない。」

日本は依然として超学歴重視の社会的背景があり、教育には多くの費用がかかります。子供たちは学校の後に私立塾へ行き、深夜まで更にそこで勉強します。放課後の習い事も多く、親は送り迎えに追われ続けます。ベビーシッターを雇うことはまだ日本では一般的ではないので、女性が働きたい場合、唯一の選択肢は祖父母に子供の世話を頼むしかありません。このような厳しい状況のため、出生率は低下の一途を辿っています。

祖父母の話が出ましたが、年を取ると彼らはその娘・息子の自宅で介護を受けるケースが日本では多々見られます。世界一長寿の国日本と言われていますが、それは晩年を健康的に過ごすという意味とは比例しません。何年も寝たきりになったり、痴呆症になることもあります。自宅介護は家族に多くの負担がかかってきます。

ある統計によれば、日本における主婦の数は3,300万人。そのうち、専業主婦世帯は約1,500万組と言われています。統計上は、日本の女性の社会的進出度は他の先進国に比べて低く、日本政府は女性の社会への参加を奨励しています。しかし、社会制度の仕組み上、女性がフルタイムの仕事につくのは容易なことではありません。

日本のドメスティック事情とはこのようなものですが、しかし果たして日本の女性は、専業主婦になることに心から不満を覚えているのか?主婦になることは彼女たちの選択なのか、若しくは社会の軋轢が生んだ産物なのか?専業主婦になることが夢という若い世代の女性が非常に増えていると報道もあります。

多くの国では、男女の雇用機会均等が絶対必要条件であるとされています。しかし、日本の家庭の実にユニークな点は、経済的な管理を含む多くの権利を主婦が握っていることにあります。収入の大部分が男性によって供給されているにも関わらず、男性は自分が稼いだ月給から小額のお小遣いを妻から受け取るのですから。😉

日本でスーパーハードコアな教育を受け、その後ヨーロッパで15年以上働いてきた女性として、私は今の日本の社会状況にインサイダー・アウトサイダーとして「第3の眼」を通して深く抉っていきます。クラシックコンサートの形式をベースとして、日本の矛盾した現在の社会現象を、音楽とパフォーマンスを通して、舞台上で表現し尽くすことに挑戦します。また、キャリアか家庭か、という今を生きる日本女性の典型的なジレンマを、持ち得るすべての身体能力を使ってドラマ化していきます。

ゲストダンサーの巖良明は、実際は昔ながらの典型的日本人男性であるのに、現代感覚を持つ21世紀型男性像を激しく要求される苦しみを、パフォーマンスで体現します。

【Eriko Makimura presents Japanese Chamber Cabaret】

In English: (Danish text below)

Eriko Makimura presents Japanese Chamber Cabaret, a concert performance with guest performer, Yoshiaki Iwao.

The award-winning, Japanese classical pianist Eriko Makimura, challenges to expresses the Japanese domestic contradictory phenomenon throughout a dramatic and unique experimental approach to the classic concert format. As a woman who grew up and received super strict education in Japan and has lived in Europe for more than 15 years, she observes with her third eye Japanese current social situation as an insider and outsider.

Guest performer/dancer Yoshiaki Iwao will represent the present-day man, who suffers from the disconnect of being a traditional Japanese male, and the social expectations of the 21st century.

・Japanese Chamber Cabaret・

“Running a family is like a business: a manufacture industry”, a Japanese friend of pianist Eriko Makimura said. Education costs a lot, as Japan is still an academic background-oriented society. Kids go to cram school after public/private school and study there till midnight. A lot of after school activities are also required. Parents are super busy driving them all around. Hiring babysitters is not very common yet in Japan, so if women want to work, the only choice is to ask grandparents to take care of the kids.

The birth rate is dropping severely due to these conditions. Speaking of grandparents, families are supposed to take care of them at home, when they get older. Japanese average life span is the longest, but it doesn’t mean, that old people live healthily in their later years.

A statistic says that approximately 33 million females are wives in Japan (15 millions are full-time housewives).  Statistically it says that Japanese women’s social positions are rather low in comparison to other countries and the Japanese government is encouraging women’s participation in society which doesn’t seem to be working so well.

Yet, despite of all the demands and social pressure, are Japanese women unhappy to be housewives? Isn’t it their choice to be a housewife?

Outside of Japan insists that equality between men and women is a necessary and sufficient condition. However, in Japan, all the house-hold responsibilities, including economical part, is under control of women. Men receive little pocket money from their wives, even though most of income is supplied by men.

Very much looking forward to seeing all of you in Dome of Visions!

in Danish:

Eriko Makimura præsenterer Japanese Chamber Cabaret, en koncertperformance med gæsteperformer og danser, Yoshiaki Iwao.

Den prisbelønnede, japanske klassiske pianist, Eriko Makimura, udfordrer og udtrykker det japanske indenlandske selvmodsigende fænomen gennem sin dramatiske og unikt eksperimenterende tilgang til det klassiske koncertformat. Som en kvinde, der voksede op og tog en streng uddannelse i Japan og har boet i Europa i mere end 15 år, observerer hun med sit tredje øje den aktuelle japanske sociale virkelighed som både insider og outsider.

Gæsteperformer og danser, Yoshiaki Iwao, vil repræsentere den aktuelle samtidsmand, der lider under at være frakoblet den traditionelle japanske mand og det 21. århundredes sociale forventninger.

・Japanese Chamber Cabaret・

“Running a family is like a business: a manufacture industry”, sagde en japansk ven af pianisten Eriko Makimura. Uddannelse koster meget, da Japan stadig er et samfund, der er orienteret mod at have en akademisk baggrund. Børn går på skole efter skole og studerer der helt indtil midnat. Der kræves også en masse aktiviteter efter skoletid. Forældre har travlt med at køre børn rundt alle vegne! Brug af babysittere er ikke særlig almindelig i Japan – endnu, så hvis kvinderne ønsker at arbejde, er den eneste mulighed at spørge, om bedsteforældrene vil tage sig af børnene.

Fødselstallet i Japan er alvorligt faldende på grund af disse forhold. Og a propos bedsteforældrene, så er det meningen, at familien skal tage sig af dem derhjemme, når de selv bliver ældre. Den japanske, gennemsnitlige levetid er meget lang, men det betyder ikke, at ældre mennesker lever sundt i deres senere år.

Cirka 33 millioner kvinder i Japan er husmødre (befolkningstallet i Japan er 130 millioner). Statistisk betyder det, at japanske kvinders sociale position er temmelig lav sammenlignet med andre lande. Den japanske regering forsøger at fremme kvinders deltagelse i samfundet, men det lader ikke til at virke efter hensigten.

Alligevel, trods de mange krav og det sociale pres, er japanske kvinder så ulykkelige over at være husmødre? Er det ikke deres valg at være husmor?

Uden for Japans grænser fastholder man, at ligestilling mellem mænd og kvinder er en nødvendighed og en tilstrækkelig betingelse. Men i Japan er alle ansvarsområderne i husstanden, herunder den økonomiske del, kontrolleret af kvinder. Mændene får lidt lommepenge fra deres koner, selvom størstedelen af indkomsten leveres af mændene.

Eriko Makimura vil udfolde dette japanske indenlandske selvmodsigende fænomen gennem en performativt, teknisk og dramatisk koncertperformance.

KH,

Eriko Makimura/Pianist
