‘Song of Rona Island’ for Noh Theater
Jan 17, 2024 at 6:30pm ~ Jan 01, 1970 at 12:00am
Let the sounds of the Scottish small pipe and fiddle transport you to the tranquil Rona Island, Scotland. Internationally acclaimed Scottish fiddle player, Aidan O’Rourke and Scottish small pipe player, Brìghde Chaimbeul will collaborate with Noh performers to bring to you a sensational performance. Deriving the title and theme of the performance from an essay by Scottish writer and poet, Katheleen Jamie, titled “On Rona” in her essay anthology, “Sightlines”. In the essay, Jamie recalls the brutal yet beautiful nature on Rona island, as well as the livelihood of those on the island, and a sobering insight into their lost history and culture. Inspired by the story of “On Rona” and the noted beauty of nature on the island, the performance aims to send a message about the relationship between humanity and the natural world within contemporary society.
Following this first performance in Tokyo, ‘Song of Rona Island’ will be performed in Scotland next before moving on to travel across islands within Japan.
