‘The final programme of the festival will celebrate the transformative power of Noh while transcending time, culture and artforms. Alongside highlights from some of the best classical Noh repertoires including Shakkyo (Lion), highly creative new pieces will be premiered.
Yukihiro Isso (nohkan flute) will premiere a new Mugen Noh inspired piece that takes inspiration from a story written by neuroscientist Professor Iriki, joined by Noh performers.
Wiebke Leister’s and David Toop’s performance will work with improvised sound and photographs of life-casts and death-masks to think through the ‘out-of-body experience’ of Hannya when encountering the dreaming monk in Mugen Noh.
The award-winning performance company Clod Ensemble will share their musical and choreographic responses to the characteristic sounds and movements of Noh, embodying the restless spirits that appear in Noh stories.
Generously supported by Yakult UK, Arts Council England, JSPS, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and others.’
