2013 Costume Workshop
Theatre Nohgaku announces its second Noh Costuming Workshop, to be held June 12-18, 2013, in Kyoto and Fukuyama, Japan. Following a highly successful 2012 premier, 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.
Leading the lectures and guided tours in Kyoto will be well-known author, scholar and practitioner of noh, Monica Bethe. In Fukuyama, professional actors of the Oshima Noh family (including noh actress Kinue Oshima) will guide participants in hands-on demonstration of the many costumes, their functions and proper use. Also participating will be author, long-time practitioner and Theatre Nohgaku founding artistic director, Richard Emmert.
