Abstract: This study looks at “Japanese drum”, among Eguchi's works, which has been performed frequently, and demonstrates how his attitude or obsession toward creation is reflected in his works. As an approach, in addition to the replication from old footage, we received hands-on instructions from Eguchi and Miya's disciples and conducted valuable interviews about his obsession toward work-creation. The work “Japanese drum” based its subject on the deer-dance, a traditional dance in Iwate, and was first performed in 1951. Eguchi was strongly impressed by dynamism of the traditional “deer-dance”, which he saw accidentally, and, having interviewed repeatedly, he created his original work “Japanese drum.” Also, he was obsessed with everything, from music befitting the work to costumes, and reconstructed the subject of “deer-dance.” Thus, with the valiant, elegant, and dignified atmosphere of “deer-dance” intact, “Japanese drum” marvelously transformed itself, with his unique creation-method, from traditional dance to modern dance, as a new theatrical art. From each chapter it is found that the major feature of this work lies in motions and they have the ready-posture as their core, from which key basic-motions of this work are derived. Small devices are found throughout each chapter, such as modification or development of the motions and incorporation of pace-changes or peaks. Also, he used the method “simultaneous composition”, where the composer and the choreographer do their task, closely exchanging their views. It could be said the vivid rhythm unique to this work was generated through this method and it enhanced, through the synergy with the motions, this work's originality. Thus, with his unique dance-creation method, Eguchi succeeded in transforming it into a theatrical art, utilizing drums and sasaras characterizing the traditional “deer-dance.” That is exactly the feature of “Japanese drum.” Eguchi's dance-creation theory, which is highly-regarded even today, will continue to inspire dancers timelessly.
