Noh as Practice, a two-week intensive workshop that culminates in a full week of personal instruction by professional noh master Kinue Oshima, will hone your concentration, amplify your stage presence, and open new aesthetic vistas that will enrich your creative work.

Blue Moon Over Memphis

On August 9, 2014 at 4 pm Theatre Nohgaku will present Blue Moon Over Memphis at the Alvina Krause Theatre, Bloomsburg PA. This work-in-progress performance is free to the public.

With libretto by New Dramatists alumna Deborah Brevoort, and noh music by Theatre Nohgaku artistic director Richard Emmert, Blue Moon Over Memphis is a stark and beautiful meditation on fame, loss and loneliness. A woman makes a pilgrimage to Graceland on the anniversary of Elvis’s death, but is forced to wait outside the gates. A mysterious man lets her into the Meditation Garden where Elvis is buried, and there, under the light of a blue moon, she encounters a spirit.

2013 Writers Workshop

THEATRE NOHGAKU 2013 WRITER'S WORKSHOP

July 12 - 14, 2013. Hosted at the 92nd St Y, New York, NY

Since 2003, Theatre Nohgaku has hosted workshops for poets, playwrights, musicians and performers to help them better understand Japanese noh and to assist them in using noh in their own artistic pursuits.

The Writer’s Workshop will familiarize participants with the structure and character of noh, a 600-year-old traditional stage art of Japan. By guiding participants toward the writing of their own noh plays, TN is fulfilling its mission as a multi-national theatre company that champions the creation of new English-language noh.

Mentored by noh performers Akira Matsui and Kinue Oshima and directed by Richard Emmert, two performances of Atsumori were held free to the public in an outdoor torchlight performance on the banks of the Susquehanna River.
