Description

This one-week course introduces participants to the Japanese noh theater, among the world’s oldest continuously performed dramatic forms. An art with roots in ritual commemoration, it is often considered a theater of ghosts: the dead are summoned to the stage to tell their stories of loss and posthumous wandering. Participants will discuss the development of noh in its medieval context; explore formal elements of script and music of the genre; and read through three traditional and one very recent play to explore the noh’s relationship to memory and memorialization over time.
