The Basics of Kyogen
The Basics of Kyogen

[1-DAY Performing Arts Workshop] November 16, 1 PM

Known for their rigid preservation of this art form’s dignified style, members of the prestigious Yamamoto Tojiro Family of the Okura School of Kyogen will teach the exaggerated gestures and voice work needed to perform kyogen—noh’s comedic cousin. Participants will learn the school’s disciplined sense of physicality as well as hallmark phrases that are spoken by feudal lords and their vassals.
