Genzai-Mono (現在物)

Genzai Noh is a type of Noh that deals with events in the real world, and Genzai Noh with a male Shite are known as Genzai-Mono. As the Shite does not wear a mask, these plays are also known as hitamen-mono, or “bare face plays,” and include works such as Shunkan and Kagekiyo. Popular Genzai-Mono include stories of life, art, struggle and war, and works such as Ataka and Hachinoki have greatly influenced later generations of Noh.
