Workshop: Noh Movement Creative Session

Acting from Inside

Noh Reimagined

Led by Kohei Kawaguchi, and Gasho Yamanaka, the shite actors of the Kanze School, join us for a Noh Movement Creative Sessions that is open to everyone, but most suitable for actors, choreographers and dancers.


Jean-Louis Barrault, a French actor who uses Noh techniques to help him inhabit his characters, described his experience of movement in Noh by saying, “it appears to me that, acting more from the inside, making fewer gestures, I gain effectiveness – I enter fully into the role and control it.”

Led by Kohei Kawaguchi, and Gasho Yamanaka, the shite actors of the Kanze School, the workshop will delve into fundamental elements of kata (forms). You will turn these basic movements into a series of fluid motions that enable subtle emotional expression referring to the Noh play Kinuta which will be performed later that evening.

Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to create short choreographed pieces of their own.

This workshop is open to everyone and is most suitable for actors, choreographers and dancers, but no knowledge of Noh is required.

Please bring a pair of white socks or white tabi. The workshop will last approximately 60 minutes.
