On March 25 ~ 31, 2016, the BU Arts Initiative-Office of the Provost, the Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program, the Center for the Study of Asia, and the CAS Department of English will host a five-day residency leading up to the world premiere performance of Zahdi Dates and Poppies as well as the English-language adaptation of the Japanese classic Sumidagawa (Sumida River.)
This fall in South Texas, three rivers converge. . .
Where Rivers Meet is a performance and education project that project culminates in a world première: a triple bill of the Japanese noh play Sumida River; Song of the Yanaguana River, by 2015 Poet Laureate of Texas Carmen Tafolla; and Benjamin Britten’s one-act opera Curlew River. Join us for the performances and for all that leads up to them. . .
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.
