Detailed Information

Performance content Discover the Timeless Art of Noh Theater

Experience Japan's iconic classical performing art – Noh Theater. It is one of the world's oldest forms of theater that has been passed down through generations, remaining captivating to this day. Noh evolved into the current form in the 14th century, honing its distinctive style over a remarkable span of 650 years.

Noh Theater consists of two art forms: Noh and Kyogen.

Noh: Delve into the world of song and dance drama, where beautiful masks and costumes breathe life into tales. Through the graceful rhythms of classical Japanese poetry (waka), Noh captures the intricate tapestry of human emotions, such as anger, sorrow, jealousy, brought to life by the Shite, the main character. These roles span not only ordinary individuals but also encompass gods, ghosts, spirits, demons, and supernatural beings such as Tengu (long-nosed goblins) and dragons.

Kyogen: Embark on a journey of laughter with Japan's own form of comedy. Rooted in refined dialogue, Kyogen cleverly distills the quirks and essence of human nature from medieval daily life and folktales, creating a tapestry of "laughter" and "mirth."

In 2008, Noh Theater was designated as a "Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO.

Shimai Dance

Shimai showcases an essential dance segment of a Noh piece. Unadorned by masks or costumes, the dance relies solely on powerful chants and choruses.

Oimatsu: Dance celebrating the idyllic spring and peaceful world honoring the spirit of pine trees.
Kasa-no-dan: A straw hat dance by a poverty-stricken reed seller.
Saigyo Zakura: Dance of the spirit of an ancient cherry blossom tree, appearing in the dreams of the revered monk Saigyo.

Noh Play: Niwatori Tatsuta

In the province of Kawachi (modern-day Osaka Prefecture), a man named Hiraoka ventures to Tatsuta Mountain, famed for its crimson foliage. Enchanted by a magnificent rooster, he tries to captures it, unaware of its sacredness. A woman appears and urges him to release it for it has been set free for a ritual, but Hiraoka persists. The consequences unfold as he returns to find his household in turmoil – his wife possessed by the rooster's spirit. The shaman’s ritual begins invoking the name of Fudo Myoo, the guardian deity of Buddhism, in prayer, and the rooster's spirit is subdued and departs. While Noh often features spirits of plants, a play where the main character is an animal spirit is rare. Don't miss this rare and unique revival after 25 years, where animal spirits, Buddhism, and the supernatural collide.

Kyogen Play: Suou Otoshi

Step into the world of Suou Otoshi, where a journey to Ise Shrine, a popular pilgrimage destination at the time, prompts amusing scenarios. Amidst sake and farewell gift (ceremonial robe), Taro Kanja's intoxication adds to the charm. aro Kanja returns home, and his master who comes to welcome him finds him... This endearing play is a showcase of Taro Kanja's irresistible allure as he revels in spirits and laughter.

Noh Play: Dojoji

Witness the popular tale of Dojoji Temple based in Kii Province (modern-day Wakayama Prefecture). Amidst the bell-ringing ceremony held to commemorate the restoration of a hanging temple bell, the priest inadvertently breaks the rule of not allowing women to enter the temple grounds.

A white-robed female dancer (shirabyoshi), appears, wishing to perform a dance in honor of the ceremony. She approaches the bell while dancing to a unique rhythm, culminating in a daring act to drop the bell, and slipping inside it.

Learning what happened, the priest explains the story of Dojoji temple. In the past, a Yamabushi (mountain ascetic) used to visit the home of the magistrate Manago every year. Manago's daughter had been told since childhood that she would marry the Yamabushi. When she grew up, she pressed the Yamabushi to marry her, but he fled and hid inside the temple bell. Out of desperation, she transformed into a serpent and pursued him, ultimately burning both the Yamabushi and the bell.

Realizing that the woman's curse lingers, priests begin to chant prayers. A serpent-shaped woman emerges from the lifted bell. As prayers rise, a battle unfolds, and the spirit disappears into the depths of the Hidaka River.

Re-imaging Noh for a Gender-Inclusive Future
We are proud to introduce an exceptional lineup of female Noh performers, pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of Noh theater. Noh theater, with its roots dating back to the 14th century, has long been a domain exclusively inherited by male artists. While doors have been opened for women in Noh theater, they presently constitute a mere 20% of the community, struggling to dispel the lingering perception that Noh remains a male-dominated realm.

As a Noh community, we are revitalizing the ancient form, celebrating the advancement of women and diversity, for a future where the stage knows no gender boundaries.
