Our History

Kyōgen at UHM

The Department of Theatre & Dance at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa has a long history of collaborating with master artists from Japan, bringing a wide range of traditional arts to the already diverse community of Hawai’i and beyond.

For those looking to engage with this sort of training at a deeper level, we recommend checking out the various programs we offer. Whether pursuing a BA, BFA, MA, MFA, or even PhD, students who come through our programs leave with a better historical, theoretical, and practical understanding of a rich variety of the worldʻs theatre traditions.
