The series "Kyogen Theater" started in 2004 based on the concept of "Kyogen as 'performing arts' = performing arts" beyond the framework of classical performing arts.A special Noh stage will be set up in the theater space of the Setagaya Public Theater, and in addition to performing about XNUMX famous songs, there will be readings of Atsushi Nakajima's "Gojou Shusse," a new dance piece "MANSAI Bolero," and narration techniques. , has presented the multifaceted appeal of Kyogen.In addition, the three bridge bridges, the black background that blends into the darkness, the high theater space, the lighting, and the video effects, and the production full of originality are attracting attention every time.
This time, it is a program where you can enjoy the theatrical, modern, dance, and musical elements of Kyogen.

Program A “Hagi Daimyo” / Seiko Ito’s “Mirror Crown” / Noh Musical Music / “Echigo Muko” congratulatory ceremony "
  "Hagi Daimyo" is a satire of the unrefined daimyo, but at the same time, you can enjoy the generosity of Kyogen.In the scene where the daimyo gazes at the blooming clover flowers in front of her, her skillful acting stimulates the imagination of the audience. 
Kagami Kaja is a new Kyogen play written by Seiko Ito and directed by Mansai Nomura.Because it emphasizes the "mirror world" in the space, it is a work that is rarely performed on a normal Noh stage. Premiered at the National Theater in 2000, this will be the first repeat performance since 05's "Kyogen Theater No.XNUMX".The "mirror mime" that mimics each other's movements, which is not seen in classical performing arts, and the "symmetrical dance" backed by dance techniques are must-sees.The aun breath of the performers confronts us with the abyss theme of "Who am I?" along with laughter.
  "Echigo congratulatory ceremony ” will only perform the lion dance part where Muko dances in the climax scene of the final stage of “Echigo Muko”.Muko appears in a unique costume with a red head and red cloth mask and two fans representing the mouth of a lion.Mansai performs an acrobatic lion dance to the accompaniment of the Fujita-style flute and other musical accompaniment.Please pay attention to the dance nature of Kyogen-jishi, which is different from Noh and Kabuki, such as three-point headstand and jumping.

★A program cast★
A Pro "Hagi Daimyo"
One of Kyogen's representative songs featuring the generous daimyo and the witty Taro Kaja.A rural feudal lord goes to a certain garden to see Hagi blossoms, guided by Taro Kaja.The owner of the garden is an elegant person who always asks his guests to perform a taiza (improvisational waka poem).Taro Kaja teaches the daimyo who has no knowledge of waka poems in various ways, but the daimyo, who is excited about the splendor of the garden, makes a series of mistakes even though he intends to praise it.And the daimyo will finally compose a waka poem...
Daimyo: Mansaku Nomura (11/1-3)
     Yukio Ishida (11/8)
Taro crowner: Shuichi Nakamura (11/1, 11/3)
        Ren Naito (11/2, 11/8)
Host…Yukio Ishida (11/2)
     Kazunori Takano (11/1, 11/3)
     Haruo Tsukizaki (11/8)

A new Kyogen by Seiko Ito, which premiered in 2000 and was well received in 05's "Kyogen Theater XNUMX".
 The master orders Taro Kaja to offer sacred sake to the mirror that the yamabushi entrusted to him.Taro Kaja inadvertently drinks sacred sake, gets drunk, and while dancing amused by his reflection in the mirror, his master comes to see how he is doing.The master can no longer distinguish between the person reflected in the mirror and the Taro Kaja.While making use of traditional Kyogen ideas and comedy throughout, the skillful use of mirrors and masks reveals the dangers of the existence of “I”.
Taro crowner: Mansai Nomura
Main: Yukio Ishida (11/1, 11/3)
    Kazunori Takano (11/2, 11/8)
Mirror crowned person ... Hiroharu Fukada

"Echigo Muko Celebration Ceremony"
 The A program concludes with a happy lion dance performed by Hanamong, who has arrived at the banquet.The red head is covered with a red cloth, and the two fans are used to express the lion's mouth.Please look forward to the Kyogen lion dance performed by the Fujita School of Fue-kata and the acrobatic lion dance created by Mansai.
Mansai Nomura

B program small dance "Kaidoshitari" "Cim" / "Bunzanzoku" / Noh musical accompaniment / "Kasen"
 After the small dances "Kaidoshitari" and "Cemi", "Bunzanzoku" will be performed.A dialogue drama unfolding between two bandits who let their target traveler escape and fell apart.Among the "bandit stuff" that is supposed to be stolen but instead is stolen, it is a unique work that scoops up the everyday sensibilities of ordinary people.
 "Kasen" is a large piece of music unique to the school, which is rarely performed.The Mansaku no Kai clan, including Living National Treasures Mansaku Nomura, Mansai Nomura, and Yukio Ishida, will play six waka poets.One of the highlights is the idea that the poet, dressed in a dynasty-style gorgeous costume, slips out of the ema.In addition, although it is unique to Kyogen that the interactions between the poets, who are supposed to be elegant, make you feel somewhat human, but expectations are also rising for the development that vividly betrays the viewer's expectations that they will exchange elegant poetry.

★B program cast★
Small Dance "Kaidoshitari" "Cemi"
Komai is a condensed form of Kyogen dance.This time, we will see "Kaidoshitari", which depicts the scenery of the journey, and "Cemi", which is full of agile movements.The dance is of course a must-listen, but the kobuyo, which is sometimes well paced and sometimes humorous, is also worth listening to.
"Down the Kaido"
Haruo Tsukizaki (11/5)
Satoshi Oka (11/6)
Go Iida (11/7)
Nomura Mansai

 A work in which a bandit who can't be a villain appears and you can enjoy the dialogue drama unique to kyogen.Two bandits split up after letting the traveler they were aiming for escape.The two timid people have a duel, but they come up with some reason and things don't go forward.Since it would be futile to die without anyone knowing, one of them proposed to write it down.He starts writing immediately...It is an excellent work that makes you feel sad in the end while feeling a sense of humor in the exchange of bandits.
Bandits: Yukio Ishida/Hiroji Fukada

"Poetry Fairy"
 A must-see Kyogen as it is a unique Omagari of the Izumi school and rarely performed.From the votive tablet dedicated to Tamatsushima Myojin, the god of waka poetry, six poets begin to move and begin the moon-viewing party.At first, the atmosphere was harmonious, but when Komachi Ono, the only woman in the waka poetry circle, drinks a sake cup, the atmosphere begins to change.One of the highlights of the play is the elegant atmosphere of the poets dressed in dynasty-style costumes, but when it comes to the battle scene, it turns into a thrilling development, making it a multi-layered work.
