Costume Workshop (Day Before)

Some of us have already gathered in Kyoto for the first ever Theatre Nohgaku Costume Workshop.

Hosted by Richard Emmert and Monica Bethe, the workshop will feature a lecture component as well as some “hand’s on” training at the Oshima Nohgakudo in Fukyama.

We’d originally intended to host some photos along with these entries; but we’ll have to see about that – the portable WiFi that was rented is unfortunately quite slow and may not tolerate image uploading. We’ll still keep everyone updated to the degree that the internet will allow, and add some image files after the fact (or at least a point when we get to a hotel with a more reliable connection.)


About Theatre Nohgaku

Noh, one of the oldest continuing stage arts, combines highly stylized dance, chant, music, mask and costume with intense inner concentration and physical discipline, creating a uniquely powerful theatrical experience. Theatre Nohgaku’s mission is to share noh’s beauty and power with English speaking audiences and performers. We have found that this traditional form retains its dramatic effectiveness in languages other than Japanese. We believe noh techniques hold a powerful means of expression in the context of contemporary English language theatre.
