Festival Workshop - Noh Theater

Festival Workshop - Noh Theater

Led by Elizabeth Dowd

Performed by highly trained actors and musicians for eight centuries, Noh is one of the world's oldest theater arts still practiced today. The traditional tragic drama offered by Noh is meditative and methodical, stylized yet strict in form, and rich with music, masks, costumes, and dance.

The festival's Workshop series offers a hands-on introduction to Japanese performance techniques employed by Tennessee Williams and Yukio Mishima in their plays.

Festival Workshop - Kabuki

Festival Workshop - Kabuki

Led by Mark Oshima

Marked by vivid design, outsized characters, and bold makeup and costumes, Kabuki's crowd-pleasing classical dance dramas resemble Shakespeare at his most exuberant. For a few hours — or sometimes a full day — Kabuki theater audiences are met with the lurid, lively, and often unexpected. Dating back to the early 1600s, this timeless form still opens doors to the avant garde.

The festival's new Workshop series offers a hands-on introduction to Japanese performance techniques employed by Tennessee Williams and Yukio Mishima in their plays.

Festival Workshop - Kyôgen

Festival Workshop - Kyôgen

Led by Laurence Kominz

More than any other Japanese theater art form, Kyôgen's goal is to make you laugh. Developed alongside Noh as a series of comic intermissions, Kyôgen's broad physical comedy and stock characters resemble the slapstick antics of Commedia dell'arte players in Renaissance Italy. Farcical yet full of wit, Kyôgen performers strive to pack in the jokes before the clock runs out.

The festival's new Workshop series offers a hands-on introduction to Japanese performance techniques employed by Tennessee Williams and Yukio Mishima in their plays.

Festival Workshop - Kami-shibai

Festival Workshop - Kami-shibai

Led by Natsu Onoda Power

Kami-shibai storytelling is a street theatre form that translates roughly to 'paper play,' and relies on a narrator to guide the audience along with a series of small illustrated boards and cards. Popular during the Depression of the 1930s through the post-war period, Kami-shibai's hand-drawn tales updated Japan's deep history of pictorial storytelling for the modern streets, bridging oral folklore with the dawn of television.

The festival's new Workshop series offers a hands-on introduction to Japanese performance techniques employed by Tennessee Williams and Yukio Mishima in their plays.
