Description

Costumes for Kyogen, a humorous form of Japanese theater, are often created using paste-resist dyeing technique to make designs stand out against colored backgrounds, as with the graphic lotuses seen on this early nineteenth-century suo (jacket) in the Museums collection. Originally worn by an actor playing the role of a samurai lord, we have adapted it for our striking jacket.

Available in one size. Silk. Draped kimono shaping. Open front. Dry clean only. Imported.

Art History

Kyogen was once performed as comic relief during intermissions in a day-long program of the more serious Noh drama. Today Kyogen is enjoyed as a distinct form of theatrical performance. Reflecting the bombastic acting style, costumes for Kyogen are noted for their bold patterning.
