Kyogen is a traditional form of Japanese comedy that is distinguished from Noh theatre by its more light-hearted and comedic nature. It is typically performed without masks, and actors use exaggerated gestures and expressions to bring out the humour of the play. Kyogen actors often wear colourful costumes, and the plays often depict the daily life of ordinary people in the middle ages. The humour of Kyogen is universal, providing audiences with a source of delight and joy.

The event is part of a series of activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic relations this year. It is an occasion to celebrate the strong and enduring friendship between the two nations and reaffirm their commitment to deepening bilateral cooperation.
