Theatre of Yugen needs YOU!
Be a part of honoring our past and ensuring the exciting future of Theatre of Yugen & NOHspace
For over 36 years, Theatre of Yugen has bridged the gap between East and West; preserving the vanishing Japanese art-forms of Noh and Kyogen and making them accessible to Bay Area audiences. Now, with a new leadership team in place, we're looking towards the future and planning the next 36 years of this vital organization.
We have the potential, and the people, to remain an integral part of the vibrant San Francisco arts community, but we can't do it without you. Please consider making a contribution to our indiegogo campaign, which will ensure our upcoming production at the SF International Arts Festival, as well as our longterm success and growth as an organization.
About Theatre of Yugen
East & West Contemporary Tradition
based in San Francisco FOR more than 35 years
Theatre of Yugen is a San Francisco based ensemble of artists from North America, Europe, and Asia who create works of world theater influenced by the classical Japanese dramatic forms of Noh and Kyogen. Whether the subject matter of our shows is classical or contemporary, and whether our performance is primarily serious or comic, we strive to project the aesthetic quality of yugen, or mysterious elegance, which gives our work a distinctive style and provides a unique experience to our audience.
Our ensemble members receive training in the traditional Japanese Noh and Kyogen forms. We also engage with colleagues in the experimental arts community and incorporate other diverse performance styles and artistic media into our work. We are proud to have been part of the San Francisco arts scene for more than thirty years and to have established a national and international reputation through tours across the United States, Europe, and the Far East.
