Theater Nohgaku

Professional Residency

Years: 2013

Theatre Nohgaku is an international performance ensemble dedicated to the performance of noh in both English and Japanese. Theatre Nohgaku was born of a shared passion for the classical noh drama of Japan and a belief in its vitality for contemporary audiences around the world. It was founded in 2000 by Richard Emmert and a group of English-speaking performers trained in the demanding techniques of noh. A number of master Japanese noh actors and musicians have worked with TN on specific projects, including full performances of traditional Japanese noh.
