Noh

“Noh Theater came into existence at the beginning of the fourteenth century. It is a minimalist theater, using an empty stage, no set and only a few props to suggest whatever reality is being evoked. It has two distinct sub-forms: Noh and Kyogen. The first form, Noh, is a highly stylised masked theater, with ritualistic dance movements, musical accompaniment, a chorus and heightened use of the voice on the part of the actors. Its themes tend to be melancholy, concerned with longing, loss, and the uncertainty of life and love […] The second form in Noh Theater is Kyogen, which is a broad comic style involving elements of farce. The stories are down to earth and the language is more naturalistic, as is the acting style.”

- excerpt from “An Actor’s Tricks” by Yoshi Oida and Lorna Marshall.
