Phase 3: Performance tour 2020
The 2020 Performance Tour is in preparation at present.
Subject to us raising sufficient funding, the tour will involve 21 collaborating artists from Japan, the USA and the UK.
We will perform both classical noh, ‘Takasago’, as a han noh, or half noh, followed by the complete new contemporary English-language noh, Between the Stones.
Performing both classical and contemporary noh in the same programme allows the audience to gain some experience of similarities and differences between classical noh (sung in classical Japanese) and contemporary noh (sung in contemporary English) using traditional noh techniques.
We hope that the performance tour can also include Hideta Kitazawa, noh mask maker from Tokyo. If so, as on previous tours, he will exhibit and give demonstration talks on noh mask making during the tour.
If you would like to help sponsor the performance tour we would be very pleased to hear from you. Feel free to contact us.
