Chosen this year as a "Japan Cultural Envoy" by the Agency for Cultural Affairs of the Japanese government, noh actor Yamai Tsunao returns to Japan Society for a full-day workshop on noh theater's stylized movement and vocalization. A member of the Komparu school of noh, Yamai is active in bringing the noh tradition to audiences in Japan and abroad. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to chant an excerpt from the noh play Takasago, learn basic moves from Hagoromo and try on costumes and masks. The workshop concludes with a special collaborative presentation with Yamai and pianist Kentaro Kihara from Japan. Max 25 participants. Some dance experience preferred. Participants must wear socks and activewear (no jeans).
