About TEZUMA

TEZUMA is japanese traditional magic and is designated as the Japanese intangible cultural asset.
It has a long history about 300 years.
The feature of TEZAMA is that the form called the "Kata" and "Mitate" remains.
Those are Japanese way of thinking that put a high value on beauty of form, so it differs clearly from another magic.

Act

Japanese Mysterious Fox

Original TEZUMA.
Performed at the World Championship of Magic "FISM (Federation internationale des societes magiques)".

Mask changes quickly and vividly.
This is a program that mysterious world that seems to be Japan, adding a story that "a fox turns into various characters to surprise people" and "conduct of Japanese dance".

Japanese Production Box

It is very popular with celebrations and weddings.

It is a powerful and gorgeous performance that takes out "red and white articles", "giant big golden fan" and "bright red huge umbrella" one after another from the empty box.

Paper Butterfly

This program is the kind of art which expresses the whole life of the butterfly.
I fly a butterfly of the paper by the wind of the fan.

First a butterfly is born.
Then, there is a encounter, marriage, separation and death.
Although, death is not the end.
It has left new life behind the leaf.
As time goes on, it will turn into thousand butterflies and fly away.
I'm trying to express about it with one paper.

Through this art, butterfly tell philosophy.

Thumb Tie

I go through a sword or a poll with the thumbs of both hands tied by paper strings.

It is a very simple performance, so it is too mysterious, and the audience loses a voice.

Spectator participation (Children can participate if higher than elementary schoolchild.)
