Noho Noh Theatre Kyoto 30th Anniversary Performance

Kyoto Noh Noho能法劇団30周年記念公演一目瞭然

The Noho Noh Theatre Troupe will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this July with a series of performances.

Billing itself as unique mix of Western and traditional theatre, Noho was founded in 1979 by Jonah Salz to fuse the style and spirit of Japanese noh-kyogen and Western tales.

The troupe has put on works by Shakespeare, bilingual kyogen, Beckett and others.

Based in Kyoto, Oe has performed at the Edinburgh fringe festival, Avignon, and in Paris.

On July 18th, at the Kyoto Oe Noh Theatre - a short walk east of Kyoto City Hall on Oshikoji Dori - the troupe will put on the following program:

Act Without Words 1 (Beckett)
Rockabye (Beckett)
Susugigawa
Improvisation (Palle Dahlstedt)
