Want to train with real masters in Kyoto this summer?
The 32nd annual Traditional Theater Training (T.T.T.) 2016 will be held at the Kyoto Art Center.
T.T.T. is a three-week summer intensive training program that introduces the traditional arts of noh, kyogen, and Nihonbuyo. The program is based on the practice-recital approach, and aims to allow participants from all over the world to learn the skills and spirit of traditional performing arts.
This year’s program is scheduled to begin in late July and end in early August (approx. three weeks). The instructors will be Shingo Katayama, Hiromichi Tamoi, and Nobuyuki Oe (Noh); Akira Shigeyama, Yasushi Maruishi, and Doji Shigeyama (Kyogen); and Yayoi Wakayagi and pupils (Nihonbuyo). Fluency in Japanese is not required of participants, though lessons will typically be given in the language (with interpreters on hand).
Application will be open from February 2016 and discounts are given to early applications, students, and artists.
