歌舞伎

The audience seating area facing the stage on the main floor of an Edo-period kabuki theatre. In kabuki’s early days in outside venues, audience members simply chose a spot on the ground (doma, ground) in front of the acting area. In the permanent kabuki playhouses that developed over the eighteenth century, doma designated a similarly-placed seating area though now indoors and partitioned into masu, or tatami seating areas boxed off by wooden rails. Tickets to sit in the doma were among the least expensive, as opposed to the sajiki.
