YCC Three-day Noh Workshop

1:30pm – 3:30pm
¥3,000 (advance sales)

If you want to experience Noh, one of Japan’s traditional performing arts, this three day course is the perfect opportunity. As a part of the Noh experience, you can try singing tradition Noh songs (called “Utai”) such as “Utaibon”, which acts as the script of Noh performances, and you can also try traditional Noh dances, which are called “Shimai,”.

With the aim of spreading knowledge of Noh, four Noh performers belonging to the Umewaka Kennokai Theater, headquartered in Nishihara, Shibuya ward, and also members of the “what is Noh” group, will act as instructors.

In addition to experiencing Noh through guided instruction, “Utai” and “Shimai” presentations will also be held in the YCC Yoyogi Hachiman Community Center Hall.
Please take this opportunity to show off your favorite traditional performing arts to your family and friends. Beginners and non-Japanese are welcome!

※ For those who do not speak Japanese, an English interpreter will be present.

The three day workshop will take place on three Sundays: May 19th, May 26th and June 2nd from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. On June 9th there will be a special presentation of the skills learned so that family and friends can come and watch – a rehearsal will be held from 10am – 12pm and the show from 2pm – 3.30pm. The course costs ¥3,000 and only 20 places are available so a lottery system will be used if more people apply. You are required to wear Japanese style ‘tabi’ socks for the classes and can pay on arrival, but get your ticket here.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
