A Kyogen performance by the Shigeyama Sengoro family, a renowned Kyogen family, will be held at Takatsuki Castle Park Arts and Culture Theater again this year. The highlight of this 31st performance is the popular performance “Nawa Nai,” in which Mr. Shigeyama Shigeyama, who has become a Living National Treasure, plays the lead role to commemorate his recognition. Please pay attention to the solo performance of Tarokaja, played by Mr. Shichigosan, as he speaks with gestures and imitations while tying a rope. In addition, we will deliver performances such as “Two Daimyo”, which expresses the generosity of the Middle Ages while having a theme of ascension, and “Chatsubo”, a light-hearted depiction of the interaction between a countryman and a swindler. There is also commentary by Sennojo Shigeyama, so even those who are not familiar with Kyogen can enjoy it.
