Bruce Davis Theater, Montgomery Hall

After four years, Asian performance specialist and professor of theater, Holly A. Blumner, brings back to the main stage a series of new Japanese KYŌGEN COMEDIES in translation, in both traditional and contemporary stagings. Meaning "mad words" or "wild speech," kyōgen is a form of traditional Japanese comic theater performed as kinds of intermissions between the acts of the more serious and somber Noh dramas. Its goal – to make you laugh! So, come have an evening of fun, kyōgen-style!
