Noh theater is a vital form of Japanese classical drama that dates back to the ninth century. Renowned Noh master Kanji Shimizu brings this ancient form to life in a strikingly contemporary fashion in this piece based on Tomio Tada’sVirgin Mary of Nagasaki, a play that revolves around the atomic bombing of the city. Following the performance, Shimizu talks about the stylistic and technical aspects of acting in Noh, such as posture and projection, and will reflect on the continuing relevance of this rich form.

Co-produced by SBU Theatre Arts Department and supported by Professor Izumi Ashizawa’s Presidential Guest Artist Grant.
