Asian Studies: "Japanese Noh and Global Theaters" (Lecture)

  • Starts: 2:00 pm on Sunday, November 2, 2014
The traditional Japanese stage art of noh is famous for the austere beauty of its chant, dance, and ethereal instrumental accompaniment. One of the oldest continuously performed arts in the world, it has also inspired many modern Western artists with its aesthetic of concentrated stillness. Join David Crandall and other members of Theatre Nohgaku as they perform excerpts from old and new pieces in both Japanese and English, and explore with BU professor Carrie Preston how noh continues to inspire creative work today.
