Noh Theater: Beyond Words, Beyond Borders

Crossing the language barrier to share "Noh" with the world.

This program consists of both a behind-the-scenes "experience corner" and special performances of Noh in both English and Japanese.
For foreign visitors to Japan, a hands-on "experience corner" will allow visitors to try on masks and costumes as well as play instruments before the performance with guidance from Noh professionals. The performance section of this program features Japanese, English and bilingual selections from Noh and its comedic counterpart, Kyogen. Performers from the Kita School of Noh, Theatre Nohgaku, and the Shigeyama School of Kyogen will present Japanese, English and bilingual selections culminating in a Japanese premiere of the demon Noh Kurozuka with a special English Kyogen interlude. A question and answer period with featured performers will follow in Japanese and English.

You can buy a today’s ticket at an entrance reception desk from 12:00.
