Kanze Kiyonaga (観世清長)

Kiyonaga KANZE (died 1842) was a Noh actor who played shite-kata (main roles) in the Kanze school. He was the twenty-first head of the Kanze family. He went by the name Sakon KANZE.

He held a fifteen-day Kanjin noh (performances held to raise subscriptions for the construction of shrines or temples) outside the gate of Saiwai-bashi Bridge. Because the performances were so well received, it was extended for a total of twenty-five days, becoming the longest Kanijin noh performance in the Edo period. He had a child, Kiyotaka KANZE, who became the twenty-second head of the family.
