Theatre of Yugen Presents: May Kyogen Mayhem
Theatre of Yugen presents May Kyogen Mayhem, a night of comedy, fusion, and confusion!  This year, we treat the process of theatrical adaptation as one of transformation.  We begin the evening with the classic kyogen play Nukegara (The Demons Shell).  

In this play, a cross between a buddy comedy and a comedy of manners, banquets have become all the rage.  So the Master of the House asks his best servant Taro to secure some fish for a feast.  But before Taro can leave the house, they have to share a toast or two. After all, only the best sake can go with the freshest fish!  Hijinks ensue as the Master teaches Taro the value of holding your liquor.

Closing out the evening will be a workshop excerpt from a brand new play, Tomorrows Sound, a meditation on the ephemeral nature of sound and time, written and composed by Zhoushu Herakleitos Ziporyn.

Utanojo is a traveler from far away who has settled in a remote village after finding the woman of his dreams, Mie.  The village has begun to suffer from some mysterious ailment that no one can find a cure to.  As Utanojo searches for a way to help his new-found home, the God of Sound decides to pay him a visit, offering the cure in a Faustian bargain.  Performance techniques from kyogen, noh, and kabuki infuse the piece, set against a completely original soundscape.
