2 Days of Noh

October 15 & 16, 2018

The centerpiece of this two-day event is a staging by Theatre Nohgaku of the English-language noh play "Blue Moon Over Memphis," which is about the life of Elvis. There will also be a keynote lecture in Japanese by Takemoto Mikio, an expert in Noh and medieval Japanese literature; a mask-carving demonstration by Kitazawa Hideta (who created the Elvis mask for the play); another brief demonstration of Noh costuming and dancing and so on; and a discussion (also in Japanese) of Noh as a global theatrical form.
