Kyogen is a form of classic Japanese comedic performance which seeks out humor and laughter in people’s daily lives. In collaboration with the Noh Society in New York, the Japan Studies
program will host a program consisting of three Kyogen activities—a workshop, a lecture, and a performance—on September 26, 2017. All activities, directed by three noted Kyogen performers from Japan (Daijiro Zenchiku, Noriyoshi Ohkura, and Noboru Miyamoto), are certain to bring out wonder, joy, and laughter. This program is made possible by the generous support of the Japan Foundation, New York and the UK Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures & Cultures.
