from the renowned ensemble Theatre of Yugen present a demonstration of reinterpreted Japanese Noh-Kyogen theater. Classical kyogen plays are performed along with new contemporary
counterparts, inspired by the plots and characters of classic plays. With
updated language, context and style, the reinterpretations reflect the growth
of traditional into the contemporary, the bridging of old and new.
For more than 35 years, Theatre of Yugen has consistently provided experiences
in Noh-Kyogen theater, sharing appreciation for these forms with an
increasingly diverse array of audiences. Whether classical or contemporary,
serious or comedic, the performances strive to project the aesthetic quality of
yugen (mysterious elegance), which
gives the work a distinctive style. For more information, visit www.theatreofyugen.org.
