The Beauty of Noh: Tomoe + Yoshinaka

September 26, 2014 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

The Japan Arts Connection Lab presents a rare opportunity to see authentic Noh, the most traditional of Japan’s classical arts and the world’s longest-running continuous form of theatre, dating back to the 1300s.

Munenori Takeda, one of Japan’s most talented Noh masters, joined by a full Noh troupe belonging to Japan’s pre-eminent 600-year-old Kanze school, will perform “Tomoe”. Part of the Japanese classical epic, Tales of the Heike, “Tomoe” tells the moving story of the famous 12th-century woman warrior, Tomoe Gozen, and her ill-fated love for her master, Yoshinaka. Seattle’s own Garrett Fisher, inspired by the beauty of Noh, will perform pieces of his original opera, “Yoshinaka,” based on “Tomoe” and sung in Japanese and English verse.
