Date/Time: April 9 at 8 pm, April 10 at 3 pm and 8 pm, April 11 at 3 pm
Location: Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, 135 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY

The attempt is to translate the indispensable musical elements found in Noh which is Japanese traditional theatre into western music. Adopting Shakespear’s drama, Japan’s young traditional performers embark on a new interpretation of a Noh play as a theatrical art. Performers of Noh play and Japanese dancers demonstrate their art, opera singers sing, and percussionists and a pianist accompany the other performers. This project is an experimental contemporary Noh-performance set in the hybrid city of New York. It expresses the current moment of Japanese culture.
