About this Event

We will be welcoming the Ōkura school Kyogen actor, Shigeyama Ippei. Active both in Japan and internationally, he is known not only for his Kyogen performances but also for his appearances in theatre and TV. He will introduce the history of Kyogen and give some pointers on how to enjoy its distinctive qualities, followed by performances of “Kakiyamabushi" (The persimmon Thief) and “Susugigawa” (The Washing River).

“Kakiyamabushi” is a traditional play while “Susugigawa” is an adaptation of a medieval French farce, “Le Cuvier”, written by Iizawa Tadasu in 1952.We will be bringing you, from Kyoto!, the distinctive Kyogen of the Shigeyama family, which both preserves a long and illustrious heritage and also takes on the new and innovative!After the performances, there will be a Q&A session where Shigeyama Ippei will directly answer your questions.

We look forward to having you join us for this exciting event.
