Theatre of dreams, theatre of play : nō and kyōgen in Japan ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
With a history spanning over 600 years, noh is the oldest and most complex form of theatre in Japan. A prized artistic legacy from the age of the samurai, it is still practised in Japan today, almost unchanged. Often referred to as ‘Japanese opera’, noh combines drama, music and dance to create plays full of symbolism, legend and grace. These epic plays are interspersed by kyohgen skits – brief spoken dramas about folk tales and everyday life that serve as comedic interludes. From dazzling costumes and enigmatic masks to finely crafted instruments and paintings, Theatre of dreams, theatre of play brings you all the splendour, tradition and exacting harmony of a live no performance. Handed down through generations, the 165 works in this exhibition showcase the exceptional skill of master artisans whose samurai patrons spared no expense in their production. Drawn from prestigious Japanese collections, these works have never before been exhibited together outside of Japan. 0Exhibition: Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia (14.06-14.09.2014)
