Mibu Kyogen 02

Breaking plates! These plates are sold during the Setsubun festival, where people paint their names and family's names on them. Then, at the climax of this piece, they're pushed off the edge and shattered.

 

It's the finale to the "Horaku Wari" piece, involving a plate seller and a drum seller fighting to be the first to open a tax-free shop in a market....

 

It was the hilight of the show - all the news cameras left after that....
