Kyogen: Traditional Comic Theater Of Japan  | Open: 03/26/10 Close: 03/28/10
Japan Society welcomes the Yamamoto Kyogen Company in a presentation of two classic kyogen tales, Shido Hogaku (Stop in Your Tracks) and Tsukimi Zato (Moon-viewing Blind Man).   

Shido Hogaku (Stop in Your Tracks) is the classic kyogen tale of a master-servant relationship turned on its head.  When a servant is sent by his callous master on a shameful errand, in his spite, the servant vows to get his revenge.  Hijinks ensue as the two engage in a riotous reversal of station, with the servant getting the last laugh. 

Tsukimi Zato (Moon-viewing Blind Man) is a farce in which a blind man meets a passerby on the road while enjoying a full moon and quickly becomes the object of a cruel trick perpetrated by the stranger.
