Dance Comedies in Kabuki
In the early 20th century, a group of Kabuki dances were created based on Kyogen comedies. Premiering in 1910, The Zen Substitute is one of the best examples of this genre. The simple, domestic plot rises to the level of a romantic fairy tale through music and ingenious choreography. Mitsugoro and the late Kanzaburo teamed up to fill the stage with the joy of life.
