Notes about Noh and Kyogen:

Japan's traditional performing arts of Noh and Kyogen developed together in the 14th century during the Muromachi period (1333-1573). Today, they are thought of together as the art of Nogaku, or as Noh & Kyogen.

Noh is a symbolic drama typified by graceful, quiet elegance that expressed the concept of "yugen" (refined elusive beauty). Noh characters are from history or classical literature, and it is structured around song and dance. 

The main actor performs wearing a mask of exceptional beauty. Its themes concern human destiny.  It is a highly stylized and refined art performed on a simple stage - Noh costumes are quite ornate, with copious amounts of exquisitely dazzling embroidery.

Kyogen is a spoken comedic drama and actor also ware masks.  Unlike Noh, it uses the everyday life of the common people in feudal society or folk tales as its subject. This more lively art, whose typical main character is a servant named Taro Kaja, evokes a gentle and entertaining humor.

Noh and Kyogen are performed on the same stage. Both Noh, through its pursuit of a symbolic ideal beauty, and Kyogen, through its realistic expression of humor, attempt to portray the essence of human nature, and have been passed down in these complementary roles.
