Lecture / Performance

Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10010

Friday September 29th, 2017    7:00 pm

 

The acclaimed Ohkura School Kyogen actors Noriyoshi Ohkura and Daijiro Zenchiku are returning to New York!

Having delighted audiences with their performances and laughter in 2016, this year Mr. Ohkura and Mr. Zenchiku will perform the Kyogen classics, “SHIMIZU” (Spring Water) and “KAGYU” (Snail).

“SHIMIZU” is about a servant who cannot be bothered to get the water needed for a tea ceremony and makes up a story about a demon appearing at the spring...

“SNAIL” tells the improbable events that ensue when a servant agrees to bring back a snail that is an elixir of long life. The servant has no idea what a snail is and assumes a sleeping priest he encounters is the snail he is seeking...

Mr. Ohkura and Mr. Zenchiku will preface the performances with a lecture on the history of Kyogen and demonstrations of Kyogen acting techniques, stage effects, and sound use, making the performance readily accessible to everyone. (The program will be presented in Japanese with English supertitles.)

 

Kyogen is traditional Japanese comic theater. Kyogen dates back to the 14th century and was designated a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2001.

Noh Society presents a lecture/performance “The Anatomy of Noh – Aoi no Ue” featuring the renowned Noh actor Yoshinari Shimizu from the Kanze School on May 19th and 20th.

Mr. Shimizu will examine “Aoi no Ue” based on the classic “The Tale of Genji” and decode how human obsession is embodied in this Noh play with explanations of Japanese aesthetics from the Japanese view of life and death.

The presentation will culminate in a short performance of “Aoi no Ue” in an intimate setting after he explains the anatomy of Noh with its importance of physical balance and use of space on the stage with a demonstration of the choreography, walking method, and chanting. 

Yoshinari Shimizu performs in more than 150 programs a year in Japan and overseas. Last year he played one of the Lions at “ Shakyo” at the Lincoln Center Festival.

This is a unique opportunity to discover and experience Noh, an art form handed down for over 650 years.

The program will be in Japanese with English translation.
