This performance shows the two-dancer version of the famous play, Musume Dôjôji, where the double spirit of Kiyohime comes to the Dôjô temple as shirabyôshi dancers, Hanako and Sakurako. Their jealous serpent-selves are revealed as they destroy the bell that once hid their lover who ran away from them.
