Drama Class does Kyogen
Mr. Don Kenny and Mr. Shichiro
Ogawa were touring the US and were returning from performances and workshops
in Chicago. It was our good fortune to hear that they would be in
Redding, California, and would be presenting Kyogen and Celtic Harp.
Since they had presented Kyogen in English for the FMF teacher group in
November at the New Otani Hotel in Tokyo, it was very exciting to think
they would be in Northern California on March 26, 2000.
Mr. Kenny has studied kyogen in
Japan for over 30 years
He has also translated a number
of plays into English and written several books on the subject..
