Announcing our 2013 Noh Costuming Workshop: June 12-18, 2013, in Kyoto and Fukuyama, Japan. Following a highly successful 2012 premiere, our workshop will include:
Comprehensive lectures (in English) on costuming in noh; guided tours to textile and other facilities, the opportunity to meet and observe highly skilled artisans at their work; an invitation to attend a noh rehearsal (moshiawase,) as well as hands-on instruction in the traditional choreographed process of dressing and being dressed in authentic noh costumes conducted by professional noh actors.
Are you looking for more information about Theatre Nohgaku, or the world of noh? Please have a look at the TN blog for updates, articles and reflections about our work - as well as information about noh music, costuming, performance practice and more.
Theatre Nohgaku needs your support! We’re an international performance group creating new and vibrant works out of our passion for the classical noh drama of Japan. Our love of this extraordinary art form compels us to share its beauty and power with English speaking audiences through the creation and production of original English language noh plays, as well as the performance of classical works in Japanese and to host workshops and educational opportunities for the public to learn more about the world of noh.
