Abstract

Ana (Hole), written by Fujita Asaya in 1965, adapts kyōgen structure and style to portray a contemporary social problem: three unemployed coal miners struggling to survive in rapidly industrializing Japan of the 1960s. The author analyzes the play's political sensibility, and its clever use of onomatopoeia and mime.
