Kyogen as performing arts

The 7th installment of "Kyogen Theater", which explores the possibilities of Kyogen as a performing art that lives on in modern times, will be performed at the Setagaya Public Theater in December.
“Mai” and “words” form the basis of Kyogen.
In program A, which focuses on dance, he will present a solo dance of Komai and Kyogen's representative work "Bobaku" and "Bolero", which Mansai has been planning for a long time.
Program B will feature the humorous “Kanshi” and Mansaku’s narrative performance “Nasu Yoichi”, which is one of the highest peaks in the art of reciting words. In "Gojo Shusse", Kyogen performers Tomohiko Sato, Matasaburo Nomura, shakuhachi player Dozan Fujiwara, and kotsuzumi chorus Denjiro Tanaka welcomed Nakajima Atsushi's question, "What am I?" It resonates and touches our hearts.
Please pay attention to "Kyogen Theater No. XNUMX", which connects the "classic - modern - contemporary" of Japanese performing arts and crystallizes the ideas and techniques of Kyogen.

"Nasu Yoichi Language" (Nasu no Yoichi Story)
In a special performance of Kyogen during the Noh play "Yashima," the famous episode of "The Tale of the Heike," in which Yoichi Nasu of the Genji clan hit the target of the fan during the Battle of Yashima, will be told with a powerful performance.It is an important piece that demands the best of the Kyogen performer's technique, in which the three characters are acted out in an easy-going way while depicting the situation. Please enjoy the pinnacle of the art of "word rehearsal".

Taken from "Journey to the West", this is the work of Atsushi Nakajima, a writer who died young and delves into the problem of the self.Youkai Sagojyo keeps worrying about everything, wondering "why?".While visiting the youkai sage who lives at the bottom of the Rusagawa River, I will continue my journey in search of "what am I?"What is the enlightenment that he opened at the end of the journey...The story written in a clear style is read aloud in a heavy and sometimes light manner.
