Outline of Story “Shunkan”
Noh Shunkan is based on the tragedy of the priest Shunkan depicted
in the Tale of the Heike, which has influenced many other traditional performing arts, including Kabuki.
Shunkan, along with his comrades Fujiwara no Naritsune and Taira
no Yasuyori, were exiled to Kikai Island in the domain of Satsuma for the crime of plotting to overthrow the Taira clan. Despite the miserable state, he found small happiness in the life he spent with his comrades.
Then comes the amnesty officer to the Island with the good news.
However, the letter of pardon does not include Shunkan’s name.
Shunkan clings to the officer on the boat carrying the two ardoned exiles, and his deep feelings of despair are expressed through extremely restrained forms and Utai (Noh song).
