About a Kanze school archive

Net exhibition

"A Kanze school archive" is the digital archive which I search the documents document which a Kanze school library possesses about Noh on the Internet and can read.

While I was supported by a patron and the audience including the family to inherit the shogunate, the Noh established by Kanami, Zeami was succeeded to to date by many Noh actors and developed. It assumed Kanami ryuso to have taken the core and was the people of the person of Kanze school to assume Zeami the second father that is successive Kanze school tayus.
It lasted with the times while Kanze school tayus protected the text including the handwriting book of Zeami, and they told, and oneself left a text while being famed for a heart in the future and formed an archive of the Kanze schools that was enormous with an aspect, attire. The cause of the cooperation of current master of a home 26th Kanze school Kiyokazu, an investigation project by the Grant in Aid for Scientific Research were carried out, and the total picture of the archive was just opened in the form called the exhibition on the Web here in the world.
