Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the “Dream Team” of noh and kyogen performers! Nohgaku Kyokai, an association of 1,500 professional noh and kyogen performers, brings together the 25 most highly ranked performers for this event, including Katayama Kuroemon, Hosho Kan and Shigeyama Sensaku, whom the Japanese government have designated Living National Treasures. Outside of Japan, it is rare to see noh and kyogen performed back-to-back, as they have been for over 600 years. It is sure to be the biggest treat of the season.
Performances will include Horizontal Singing (Neongyoku), a rollicking kyogen farce, and The Heavy Burden of Love (Koi no Omoni), one of Zeami’s most beloved and tragic noh dramas.
In Japanese with English subtitles.
