|Dr David Hughes, SOAS, University of London||speaker|
Minoru IV Gensho Umewaka – Living National Treasure and 56th head of the renowned Umewaka family – is one of the greatest and most daring representatives of Noh theatre alive today. As well as mastering the classical repertoire, he has revived ancient Noh plays and created new works, introducing innovations that have revitalised this classical art form.
In his very first appearance in the UK, Minoru Umewaka reflects on his extraordinary journey as a Noh shite (lead) actor, discussing his experience of the art form and its powerful relationship with nature in conversation with Dr David Hughes of SOAS.
