AN EVENING OF KYOGEN with Mansaku Nomura & Mansaku-no-Kai

Thirty-five years after he first shared the joy of kyogen with Los Angeles theatergoers, Living National Treasure MANSAKU NOMURA returns with the Mansaku-no-Kai Company for an evening of warm, life-affirming comedy. Also starring MANSAI NOMURA and YUKIO ISHIDA, this program of three short masterpieces (The Owl, The KawakamI Headwaters, and Tied to a Stick) displays the full range of a theatrical form that has kept audiences laughing since the fourteenth century. With its pared-down staging and stylized acting, kyogen offers an absolutely unique theatrical experience.

Performed in Japanese with English subtitles. 5pm "Discovering Kyogen" featuring Mansai Nomura ∙ 6pm Mansaku-no-Kai Kyogen This program is the result of a special collaboration between the Aratani World Series and the Yanai Initiative at UCLA and Waseda University in Tokyo
