Noh Theater Workshop

Online: Available

This workshop is held by a professional Noh actor.

Noh Theater is one of the world’s oldest performing arts and the oldest theater among three traditional Japanese theaters.
Noh consists of music, dance and drama elements, originating in the 14th century. Together with rich and heavy costumes, masks are also used by the main actor. Due to it Noh is also called a “mask drama.” This slow yet poetic, almost dream-like performance usually tells a story drawn from legends, history and literature. Many of the themes relate to dreams, supernatural worlds, ghosts and spirits.
Noh was developed together with Kyogen, comical pieces performed during interludes of the main Noh performance. The dual art of Noh and Kyogen has been designated an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

During this experience the Noh actor will talk about Noh and introduce masks used in the performance. He will also teach the actual stage movement and acting.
If two actors or more are reserved it will be possible to enjoy a Noh theater performance.
