Kyogen often performs in each family.
The Tachiai Kyogenkai is a group of young Kyogen actors from different schools and homes gather once a year.
This year, to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection, the event was held with 3 Kyogen performances and 5 Komai performances.
Continuing this performance will deepen the exchange between Kyogen Actors.
It leads to the activation of the entire Kyogen world.
We have the feeling of cultivating and nurturing the next generation of audiences.
It can be expected to have a ripple effect of increasing the audience of Kyogen
Tachiai Kyogenkai will be an unprecedented breakthrough performance that will contribute to the spread and development of Japanese culture.
