About the Kanze School of Noh
The Kanze School was one of the Sarugaku performing arts that was active in Yamato (old name for Nara Prefecture) during the Nanboku-cho period (1336-1392). The school belonged to the Yuzaki troupe, and Kan-ami who served as the tayu (leading actor in the troupe) was the first generation. Father and son – Kan-ami and Zeami – refined the performing art and gave it depth. The school was characterized by graceful, delicate expressions.
