The ancient Japanese stage art of noh has much to teach contemporary theater artists, dancers, musicians, poets and others about the power of mind/body awareness both on and off the stage. 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.

The workshop features:

  • Daily lessons in noh chant and dance by senior members of Theatre Nohgaku and noh professional Kinue Oshima
  • Yoga sessions led by Morgan McKenzie
  • Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement sessions led by Naoko Maeshiba

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.
