SalonKanjinchoKanjinchô, or the The Subscription List, is a matsubamemono dance play based on the classic noh play Ataka, the story is about Yoshitsune and his retainer Benkei trying to pass the barrier in disguise. Kanjinchô is one of the most popular plays in the kabuki repertoire and is one of the “Kabuki Jûhachiban” – or great 18 plays of kabuki.

Tomoe Arts focuses on kabuki dance plays based on noh themes and stories. It began in November with a tale of a flesh-eating demoness and continues  in February to one of the greatest tales of duty and heroism, ending in April with the foolish drunken antics of two servants.
