About Power Plays
What happens when the big wrestle the small? When factionalism divides priests of similar faiths? When the scared beg the ignorant for help?
Theatre of Yugen is deeply indebted to the history of civil rights, community, and social justice that certain powers that be are dead-set on flagrantly disregarding. So they're picking up their favorite weapon to fight back: satire.
The history of kyogen is satirizing those in power, proving they're no better (or sometimes even worse!) than the common man. "Power Plays" features classic and new kyogen adaptations that empower the powerless and lay into those who unwisely hold the reigns of power.
