Noh theater in the garden —Experience Japanese Beauty in an Urban Forest—
Oct 11, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Experience autumn performances of the traditional art of “Noh” in the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum’s urban grove! The themes of this open-air event are “the mountains” and “the sea”. The first evening features “Kurozuka (The Black Mound）”, and the following day presents “Funa-Benkei (Benkei in a Boat)”. Both are dynamic pieces and Noh staples, with themes that explore humanity. Enjoy the traditional beauty of these performances in a natural setting, nestled in a quiet corner of the metropolis with English subtitles and commentary.
A hands-on program for the participants to handle stage properties will be held at 18:00 on the first day before the Noh performance. You can enjoy the experience of learning how to use stage properties which are used for Noh performances for the both days.
It will be held at Kita Noh Theatre in the case of rain. Tickets on sale at Tickets Today, Confetti and Peatix. Please find the details on Tokyo Tradition website (www.tokyo-tradition.en).
