The International Noh Institute and Keiun-kai Gala Recital

In Celebration of the 50 Years of Udaka Michishige’s Stage Career
June 12~13 (Saturday and Sunday), 2010 Kongo Nohgakudo, Karasuma Ichijo-sagaru, Kamigyo-ku, Kyoto 602-0912 Tel: 075 -441-7222 Message: ‘Time flies like an arrow’ they say, and the fifty years, a half-century, since I graduated from elementary school and became a live-in apprentice with the Grand Master of the Kongo School of Noh have passed so quickly. The Keiun-kai, named for me by the late Grand Master, Kongo Iwao, and its international branch, the International Noh Institute, too, have developed in a solid and fullfilling direction both at home and abroad. I am delighted that the members of the Keiun-kai and INI have joined warmly on this occasion to present a Gala Recital spanning two days in celebration of the fifty years of my stage life. Though this is surely a busy season for everyone, I sincerely hope you will be able to join us. UDAKA Michishige
