Project Contributors & Supporters

It will be a great pleasure to be working again with professional Japanese noh artists Kinue and Teruhisa Oshima and other Japanese artists, as well as Theatre Nohgaku members. 

We are also very pleased to be working with a wide network of collaborators and partners as part of our Between the Stones 'Getting to Noh from Page to Stage' programme of activities.

We were delighted to have enough support for us to complete Phases One & Two of the project. It has been a clear indication of interest from our partners and contributors in the project and we look forward to working with a number again, as we continue to complete the final Phase Three of the project and include as many activities as we can under the 'Getting to Noh' programme.
