Theatre of Yugen prides itself on training students in kyogen movement and voice. Our students regularly go on to become performers with the company helping us with our educational outreach programs and taking part in developing new plays.
Introductory Noh and Kyogen
Instructor: Nick Ishimaru
FEBRUARY 25 - APRIL 26
$20 per week, or $100 for all eight weeks
This introductory level class covers the foundation principals of noh and kyogen song and dance. Each lesson begins with vocal warm up, a review of sitting, standing, posture, and walking. Class then details exercises to increase stability, control, and expressiveness of the body. Finally, traditional songs and dances are introduced and practiced every week.
This class expands on the basics, introducing more complex songs and dances. This class also doubles as rehearsal time for regular performers with Theatre of Yugen. Performers will be introduced to new roles, and new plays will be introduced to the company.
A foundation in the basics is required for this course.
