The Masau-no Kai Kyogen Company was founded by Mansaku Nomura II, a Living National Treasure of Japan, and is now also led by his son, Mansai II, part of a 250 year-old theatrical family line. Kyogen is one of the four representative classical theater arts of Japan which includes Noh, Bunraku and Kabuki. Kyogen is a medieval popular comedy founded in the early 14th century in Kyoto and which became integrated into the middle of each Noh play. Mansaku has been a pioneer in sharing Kyogen, as both a traditional and contemporary art, with audiences around the world.
