Renjishi (連獅子)

One of the kogaki of the Noh play Shakkyō. In the second half of the play in which a typical shishi (lion) appears, for this kogaki a gray-headed father shishi and a red-headed child shishi appear together to offer a beautiful performance. The father shishi is stout and princely, while the child shishi is more energetic, and seeing them dance together is quite a treat. Depending on the school, the same kogaki can be known as either a ōojishi or wagō renjishi, and in some cases the father shishi may appear with several child shishi.
