Works in Progress

TN is constantly developing new works to add to our growing repertory. One of the ways we do this is through writers’ workshops and music workshops designed to familarize potential noh playwrights with the structural forms and conventions of noh. Two of our productions, Pine Barrens and Pagoda, came to fruition in part through these workshops, thus reinforcing TN’s unique position as an innovative force in the international world of noh. Whether performing traditional plays in Japanese, mounting English adaptations of traditional plays, or working with writers and composers (sometimes TN members, sometimes not) to produce entirely new plays, TN is always working to bring noh to modern English-speaking audiences in fresh and exciting ways.
