KYOGEN 400 YEARS OF LAUGHTER IN KYOTO
We are excited to welcome the Shigeyama family - Shigeyama Ippei, Shigeyama Motohiko, and Shimada Hiromi - from Kyoto to New York City. Ippei and Motohiko have performed worldwide, not only as Kyogen performers but also as contemporary actors and TV personalities.

The Shigeyama family has been performing Kyogen for over 400 years. They perform in the traditional styles but also energetically experiment with new styles. It is these two aspects which we are happy to showcase in this event.    

The evening will start with Shigeyama Ippei explaining the history, distinctive qualities, and means of expression used in Kyogen.

This will be followed by a performance Kakiyamabushi" ("The Persimmon Thief) and Susugigawa ("The Washing River ").

Kakiyamabushi is a traditional Kyogen play which showcases Kyogen's distinctive expressions and a variety of onomatopoeia  sounds personifying both audible and mute objects.

"Susugigawa" is an adaptation of the medieval French farce "Le Cuvier" written by Iizawa Tadasu in 1952.
