The Beauty of Noh: Ancient Musical Drama About Female Samurai
Noh might be purest and most potent of all theatrical forms -- perhaps that's why it's so addictive. On a spare stage, actors wearing masks of exquisite beauty chant poetic dialogues to the heavy beat of a drum. This combination of actors, a chorus and a small orchestra of traditional instruments has been hooking audiences for 650 years. Now the Japan Arts Connection Lab brings the most traditional of Japan's classical arts to the Falls Theatre at ACT. A full Noh troupe led by Noh master Munenori Takeda will perform Tomoe, a moving story of the famous 12th-century woman warrior, Tomoe Gozen, and her ill-fated love for her master, Yoshinaka. Inspired by the beauty of Noh, Seattle's own Garrett Fisher will also perform pieces of his original opera, Yoshinaka, based on Tomoe and sung in Japanese and English verse.
