The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at North Carolina State University, in cooperation with Theatre Nohgaku, is delighted to announce “Welcome to the World of Noh,” a four-day program of workshops and a lecture-demonstration on noh that will take place on the NCSU campus, April 9-12, 2015.
The program will include a two-hour performance workshop, a two-hour lecture-demonstration, and a three-day writing workshop devoted to creating noh-styled performance scripts (including music). These events should be of interest to anyone wishing to gain greater familiarity with noh. The writing workshop especially will provide a unique opportunity to explore the inner world of noh, offering invaluable insight into the aesthetic roots of the art form grounded in Zen. Despite its practical focus, it will have much to offer scholars of Japan across the disciplines.
The program will be will be led by composer/playwright and former Hosho-school noh professional David Crandall, a founding member of Theatre Nohgaku.
