The event to enjoy "noh farce in sign language will be held at the Kita Noh Stage in Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo on October 21. The 'Kyogen' (a comic play) will be performed by Deaf actors along with interpreting in the event.
The Kita-Style, one of the Noh groups which is a Japanese traditional entertainment, planned it in order for Deaf persons to enjoy a classic art.
The "Japan Theatre of the Deaf," a theatrical group managed by the Totto Fund which actress Kuroyanagi Tetsuko established, performs signed 'Kyogen'.
This is a typical program of the theatre group, and it has earned high evaluations domestic and abroad. Because there is a performer who uses spoken language from a stage wing, too, even though you don't know sign language, you will enjoy it.
