YCC Noh workshop & Presentation
As a part of the Noh experience, you can try singing tradition Noh songs (called "Utai") such as "Utaibon", which acts as the script of Noh performances, and you can also try tradition Noh dances, which are called "Shimai,".
With the aim of spreading knowledge of Noh, four Noh performers belonging to the Umewaka Kennokai Theater, headquartered in Nishihara, Shibuya ward, and also members of the “what is Noh” group, will act as instructors.
In addition to experiencing Noh through guided instruction, “Utai” and “Shimai” presentations will also be held in the YCC Yoyogi Hachiman Community Center Hall.
Please take this opportunity to show off your favorite traditional performing arts to your family and friends.
Beginners and non-Japanese are welcome!
Let's enjoy the authentic feeling of Japanese traditional arts together!
※ For those who do not speak Japanese, an English interpreter will be present.
